Old leash was about to snap on my 6'0" so picked up the 6' Freedom Helix all-rounder leash. Paddled out in some heavy storm surf in OBX and had to ditch my board a couple times. The leash felt pretty solid. Super-comfortable cuff, with no unwanted rotation. And love the extended horn at the cuff for less tangling. Oh, and it's good for the earth, too. Pick one up, you'll be glad you did!
