Many people elect to make their own lead ropes as they can be effective and cut down on costs. However, these lead ropes have a strong tendency to get caught on just about anything they can find along the trail. It’s kind of like buying the nicest hunting rifle in the store and then hiking to your secret spot in a pair of tennis shoes.
We at Black Thunder have developed the perfect lead rope that is designed to withstand the rigors of outdoor use. Our eye-sliced loops on both ends allow for a sleek look that never gets hung up on overhanging limbs or anything else that the trail can throw at you. Our lead ropes also feature a 3-inch loop that attaches to a bull snap and a 0.5-inch loop that attaches to a carabiner.
Other important components to Black Thunder’s lead ropes are the premium half-inch double braided polyester yacht rope material used that is extremely abrasion resistant and UV resistant. We also feature a non-trigger bull snap that ensures no llamas manage to get off the lead rope. Our 5.5-foot length allows llamas to stay a comfortable distance away from the handler while not being able to fall too far behind.
If you are in the market for a new lead rope we strongly encourage you to check out our Llama Lead Rope and see the superior performance for yourself.
