I just got my first set of Romals this past week. I didn't get rawhide because I was worried about the humidity down here messsing with them. I got a set braided out of leather. Now if I could just get a dang day to try them out it would be great.

We lived in east TX not far from Shreveport, LA (high humidity)and I never noticed a difference in our reins. But we did keep them in the house rather than in a tack shed or the horse trailer which we almost always have with our better stuff. We also have some leather and rawhide romel reins and they are nice! They do offer a little different feel, my husband likes them better than I do so I think it to be personal choice, I am curious what you think after you try them.

I have used the rawhide before and liked them. I just wasn't sure about the humidity. I also like the look of the dark leather. Plus these were kind of an impulse buy. I was at a tack store and found them with no tag on them. I asked the price and they said 50 buck. I said " oh, I was thinking like 20-30 bucks" I got them for 30. They are by no means high dollar but more of a gateway to getting nicer ones. Kind of a perfect storm that lead to spending money I didn't need to.
