I've bought two of these over the past 2 years. My sighthound puppy pulled the first one and stretched out the bungee part. The second one she's doing much better on, but she also doesn't need a lot of correction anymore.
What I like:
Nice length - it's hard to find a leash that gives a good distance. With the stretch this lets your dog stop and sniff a bit longer and the bungee gives a subtle tug of "let's go."
Padded handle - this is just comfortable
Can be used around waist - haven't really done this, but my older mother has when walking my dog. It shortens the length, but it's a nice hand's free option.
What I don't like:
No way to tie out with this like at a restaurant or park - a snap option would be nice. This would also make using the hand's free option easier since now you have to make it bigger, step into it and cinch it.
No place to attach a poop bag or any kind of anything
Pinch clasp can be a nuisance - if you're trying to get this on and off quickly this clasp can work against you
My primary issue is that the elastic material is weak and not durable. It's not really a problem if your dog pulls steadily, but if he is like mine and sprints from one side to the other until the leash is taught, the elastic WILL rip, ruining the bungee function of the leash.
That aside, here are some other pros and cons. First, the material seems to be pretty durable, and can withstand some chewing from time to time. The ability to adjust the handle and wrap it around your waist is a bonus; even with the medium length wrapped around my waist, I had adequate distance between my dog and myself while jogging to remain fairly comfortable. For dedicated joggers, I think the large length is probably preferable. Unfastening the talon hook can be a pain at times, especially your dog pulling at the leash. However, the advantage is that the hook can slide around on the leash and thus can slide around your waist while running. The handle itself is padded and pretty comfortable, but while holding the leash on walks I've run into some minor inconveniences. Since the medium leash stretches up to 7 ft, it can be a little difficult to control your dog if he pulls. I usually found myself using my other hand to hold the extra leash like a vacuum cord. This wouldn't be much of a problem, but since the leash is made of a flat webbing material, it is pretty difficult to hold onto and can easily be yanked through your hands by an eager dog. Paired with the rough texture of the leash, this means if your dog sprints after a rabbit and the leash zips through your hands, you can be left with some burns or at least some irritated hands. Lastly, the claw hook that the leash uses for attachment looks like a solid design to me and I haven't had any problems.
In conclusion, I would say it's an above average, versatile leash with cool features, but it does not perform exceptionally in any of its duties and is expensive.
The one I have is long and works for me and my goldens, if I had a smaller dog or not as much walking space I would consider the shorter leash.
