    I just play with them and I like the feel I buy it(or trade ;) ). What about you?
    Well I've always had braided, never used a twisted one because I figured they would always come untwisted if I used them too heavy. They are really hard to find, but I had a old Hispanic friend give me them as a gift because he is moving back to Mexico. Idk whether to use them, or just hang them on the wall..

    LOL, I totally misread your original question( while burning some chow) I thought you meant cores in bosals. I have never tried. (or even swung one) a twisted one so I can't say, all I have tried was braided. Can you feel the difference?

    I think they would be a lot smoother running, but I'm not sure, I've always ever used braided. I don't want to use one and have it untwist, because they are pretty sentimental to me, but at the same time I really want to see how they are!

    Ya, too bad you couldn't get your hands on one that wasn't sentimental to test out!

    Lol, Sorry! My uncle and grandpa and parents always called them "gut lines". So its a habit of mine. Most people call them reatas or riatas, a braided or twisted rawhide rope. Like this:

So the fist picture compared to the second picture. (if the pics donít work let me know Ill try to repost them.

    I prefer bridle rings, I can get a better vibration signaled to my horse down my reins to my rein chains with bridle rings like above. It also helps to make a better angle from the reins to the rein chains. I like my bridle reins to be 42" long because on the horses I ride it, creates the right balance between rein and chain. The rein chains and reins should have a droop and balance to them that will make them look like one. Some people put too many links in there chains or the reins are too long so the angles are all messed up and you don't signal the same way that you could.

    I second that. I'd contribute videos and would love to learn what others do
