These are excellent leg ropes. Controlled rebound, the drag is very good. However there are two things I recommend. 1. Retie the knot on the rope connection too the board. I didn't and had to go reef walking to retrieve my board. 2. when you first get it hang the rope hang it at full length to get the packing kinks out of it.

POD Connection Features
All Premium Grade Components.
POD Connection: Shane Vassallo at POD Ware has proudly designed three unique advanced organically shaped connectors to suit the essential requirements for Surfing
Leg Rope Connectors: The highest grade urethane combined with the unique POD Connectors enables both to stretch to the utmost specification limits of the raw materials providing maximum durability.
Strength Testing: Ambient temperature will vary stretch results.
Swivels: The marine grade stainless steel swivel shaft encased in a naturally greasy plastic barrel casing guarantees a smooth swivel shaft rotation, eliminating any fused parts from salt erosion.
Webbing Loop: Quick release in moments of need.
*Note: Before you surf always check for fin cuts in the cord before you head out!
From our Designer, Shane Vassallo:
“Since Peter Clarke the former owner of Full Bore pioneered the first swivel connector moulded over a cord in the 80’s, surfers have been continually pushing wave riding performance to extreme levels. It was imperative that I match this with function, design & durability.
It was the structural strength in nature that inspired me to design the POD Connection. The shape and configuration enables the cord to stretch to its maximum raw material specifications; a goal I was very happy to achieve.
I hope my work inspires the next generation in leash design!
The Surfer Deserves It... CHASE IT®”
