It has been a year since I bought this retractable leash in Large. I has lasted me this long and I am pleased with this product's performace. The leash holds up well to my 3 year old American Bulldog. It is durable and for the price you pay this leash cannot be beat. Never had any problems with it not retracting properly, which was one of my concerns before buying it. Overall I can say this is a good product and lasts if you take care of it. The only thing that could be improved is the durability of the rubber around the handle which is peeling a bit but does not affect the overall performace.
