    Default Tangle free checkcord

    Is there such a thing? If so who makes them?

    Perma Tack is the best I have found.

    Some are certainly better than others , but I have never seen one that is tangle-free.

    I have gone to tuff flex check cords and I love them. They come in various lengths and the 20' is perfect for certain things. The best part is no tangled mess. Grab one end and throw it and you're good. GDS has them. They also don't burn like rope so if you forget your gloves you're golden. They are pretty grippy also and don't pick up dirt. I know its just a cord but its the best thing I've tried in a while.

    I bet the Tuff Flex is the same stuff as Perma Tack sells. Sounds like it anyway.
    Things I really like about it:
    Does not absorbed water and dirt
    Lee rope burns
    Flexible in the cold
    Does not tangle much
    High Vis colors
    Coils easily
    easy to tie in a knot and untie that knot

    Negative:
    Cost more that rope
    Dog can cut it with their teeth easily but repairs are easy

    Lion Country Supply has their tangleproof 20' check cord on sale today only for $9.99. Reg price is $15.95. They will custom make any length you want for an additional 40 cents/foot.
    I have 1 and it works well.

    Thanks, Don. I just ordered one. Hopefully I'll spend less time tending the lead and more time training now.

    I looked and I agree it looks like the same thing. I agree with the pros and con's. They're the bees knees in my opinion.

    Looked the same material to me too. I bought the one from Permatack for the extra 5 feet of line and at about $4.00 less overall. GDS had better color selection though if that is more important to folks.
