Amazing check cord!
March 1, 2024
This is a great invest for anyone! Very well made cord that you will not have to spend a day pulling briars out of after you’ve been in the field. Strong material and well stitched gives you confidence when giving corrections on a hard headed dog towards the end of range if needed to get the point across of who is in charge. It does get slick in moisture though making it a little difficult to keep a hold of.
  • Very sturdy allowing for firm corrections if needed
  • You never have to worry about picking briars out of it
  • Not the easiest to grip in wet conditions however cheap rubber grip gloves improve the grip

Best Check Cord / Long-line
February 23, 2024
When we got our first dog, we cheaped out and got the cotton/nylon long lines. As a bird dog, she drug that through everything under the sun and it began to deteriorate quickly. This long line is incredibly good quality and lasts. The rivets and brass definitely make it stand out from others. Our dogs love it!
  • - Great quality
  • - Ultra durable
  • - Weather proof
  • - Scratch resistant
  • Always get the longer than you expect. 30ft is a great length.

I really liked my 20 ft TufFlex and a friend saw it and liked it, so I bought him a 30 ft to help train his pointer pup.

I purchased to give my dog more leeway other than a retractable leash. I find it easier on him, less tugging. I purchased the 30 foot lead. The only thing I may have done differently was order the 40 foot one.

Easy to see, not easy to handle in the cold
January 25, 2023
After an old, flexible poly/nylon lead succumbed to my dog biting through it, I ordered this one as a replacement. I was quite comfortable handling the old lead and letting it in and out on walks, but it was easily knotted and could deliver a killer rope burn/cut, if my dog caught me off-guard and bolted. This replacement lead is a great bright color, is not likely to get knotted or caught if you drop it entirely. However, living in Anchorage, it is stiff in cold weather and not as easy to loop in and out in my hands as I adjust my dog’s distance from me. I am also disappointed that if I step on it to anchor my dog, it is stiff enough that it can slip from under even my studded boot. Something about it being stiffer also has me accidentally getting my foot through it n a dangerous situation more often than the older, poly/nylon lead I had. I suspect it will be better to handle when the weather warms, but not sure I’d buy this one again.
  • Choice of great bright colors
  • Choice of lengths
  • Heavy duty clip
  • Material doesn
  • Stiff in cold weather
  • Hard to stop/anchor with foot to hold dog short while using hands
  • Hard to loop neatly in hands and handle smoothly without tripping myself somewhat regularly

TufFlex Check Cord
September 7, 2022
Would give 4.5 stars. Was told it was indestructible, my dog got it caught under the bucket of the tractor and the outside split. The inner core is holding strong. The outer material sometimes snags but it is really a great cord. Will definitely be ordering another!
  • Inner material strength
  • Stays clean
  • Does not tangle or knot
  • If it tears it may snag on softer foliage

Very pleased
July 20, 2022
I like the hi vis color and cleanability. Suprised about no hand loop but its solved a long term problem which is the loops catching on something while the dog is running leash on in an area where he could get snagged. Now I can make my own loop in knot form as needed or tack to form my own permenant

Doesn’t burn you hands and pulls easy behind the dog through the brush. Best lead I’ve ever used.

I love this line!
June 24, 2022
I purchased the 30’ Tufflex check cord so that I could practice long line work with my Clumber Spaniel Wil, who I don’t yet trust off lead in the field. It’s very sturdy but also lighter than other long lines I’ve owned. It’s hard to see in the photo because the grass is tall but the cord is bright and easily visible. I’m planning on purchasing more of these check cords as gifts for my training buddies!

Great for Training and Hunting!
February 27, 2022
We purchased this 30 ft. line from Gun Dog Supply, and we've been very happy with our purchase thus far! Our dog is just a little over a year and this cord works wonders in keeping her within a safe range of us.
  • Easy to clean, durable material, no more rope burns on my ankles, easy to see in dark forests, keeps dog at a safe distance and helps as a training aid.
  • None.

I got the 10' cord on closeout and I liked it. It does not get nearly as wet as the cotton cord that I had, and it slides thru the grass and over deadfalls much better than the cotton cord. It has a good feel in your hand and does not burn like a nylon cord might. I would buy it again.
  • Stays dry
  • Slides through grass and thickets easily
  • Feels good in your hand
  • None really that I have found

Excellent check cord
December 28, 2021
This check cord is nice quality and does what it’s supposed to do. I live in the desert, so any type of rope material picks up cactus spines and other pointy stuff. The TuffFlex check cord hasn’t picked up any cactus spines thus far! The TuffFlex check cord does a pretty good job of not getting hung up on all of the brush in the areas I hunt. It is a cord, so it will get hung up on really thick nasty brush, especially when the dog is an over zealous 1.5 year old. I bought the 30 foot, but will probably get the 50 ft and the 10 ft as well. Shipping was top notch and fast as always. Thanks GDS.

Bright but soft grippy covering.
December 6, 2021
Might work for a 45+ lb dog. My dogs are 20 lbs give or take a few. Outer covering is soft rubber. Hard to pull through brush once they zigzag through a few trees/bushes the dog is stuck. Guess I’ll buy some rivets and make some cool leashes.
  • Bright easy to see
  • Strong
  • Soft covering creates a lot of drag through brush.

An essential tool for dog training
October 28, 2021
Can't say enough good things about the TufFlex material. This check cord has worked beautifully for our 1 year old Lab. She has the freedom to swim and explore and we have the piece of mind knowing that if needed we can keep her out of trouble. This check cord is light weight and does not pick up debris. Clean up is a snap. We use a damp paper towel to wipe it down with and the cord is like new. There is no knotting and it slides through reeds and weeds that would usually tangle up a cord.
  • Price point is reasonable. The material is durable.
  • None yet.

As always, Gun Dog Suppy delivers their product in a timely basis. I ordered this for training our 8 mo old Airedale Terrier to come. Right now he loves to play with it, so a work in progress….I will continue to order from this company as the need arises.

Great lead to work dogs in the field and training during an early season hunt

I was so pleased with the first lead I bought several years ago that I gave it to a friend who needed to train her puppy. I just replaced it for my two dogs early season refresher training.

Whoever made this put some thought into it. It's made with a heady duty clip and the rubber cord does not get caught on limbs or debris as your dog drags it on the ground. I love the fact that if it gets dirty you can just wipe or hose it off. I'm very happy with this product!
  • Quality made

For once a product that works as one would wish! Completely "Off leash" is not yet an option during training for our 14 month retriever. The 30 foot check leash has been just right - he can run through brush with it and it does not snag (as our other long training leashes did); at the beach it does not collect sand and thus does not "sandpaper" your hands (ditto for not collecting dirt/mud in the field, shakes right off). He is getting better on recall but 30 foot is enough to keep control if he is tempted to become distracted. We like the "orange" not only easy to see, but lets other pet owners know that he is "in class" thus maybe not ready for playtime.

September 2, 2020
A good line for quality that the dog can’t chew through yet light enough to throw another decoy or item attached to the end for a young pup. I would always recommend to go longer rather than shorter in total length

It is nice. You can trim it shorter if you like. It is a bit harder to hold when wet, but I would still recommend over rope! There are also no worries about it unraveling.
