Has anyone ever tried one of the Mustang brand Bamtex bamboo cinches?
I tried finding reviews on these before
I bought one, but there doesn't seem to be many reviews of them out there. I guess I should be the one writing the review, since I own one now! But I've only ridden in it once, for 3 hours. So far, so good! I'm pleased thus far. But one 3 hour ride isn't really enough to truly test out a cinch.
Anyway, I got one on clearance from a store near me and just had to satisfy my curiosity. It "feels" like cotton, but they claim it is the strongest cinch cord out there, doesn't stretch, etc.
I think it's main problem is that it was originally at the same price point as mohair, around $55. So if I'm going to pay that for a cinch, I will go with tried and true. Bamboo sounds rather........different. Maybe that scared some people off, I don't know. But anyway, I got one for under $20 so I'm going to give it a good try-out.
Anyone else try one of these?
Here is some examples from an online retailer if you are not familiar with them: https://www.horse.com/item/mustang-b...cinch/E023374/
