Synethetic / Biothane Rubber Grip Reins
English Bridle Acc
Model: Synethetic / Biothane Rubber Grip Reins
Category: English Bridle Acc
Purchase: I bought these reins for use for endurance. I was looking for the rubber grip for extra "stopping power" and wanted an inexpensive alternative to traditional endurance biothane reins.
I bought them about 3 years ago for $35 from Jeffers Equine.
Likes: These reins have held up well, despite much use in harsh conditions. They still look good, and the rubber is still in the same shape as when they were new. I think that the rubber grip must adhere more easily to the biothane than leather, as I have had leather rubber-grips that didn't last as long.
Dislikes: The rubber is much stiffer than what I've seen on leather reins, but this may be a consequence of the underlying biothane.
I do NOT recommend riding with these reins without gloves! Unless you have very tough hands, the rubber will be very harsh on your hands. It seems that they are a bit harsher than the rubber reins I have that are leather.
I later bought some of the "comfort grips" from wintec, and these are MUCH better.
Quality: These reins are very well constructed, and have held up well.
Summary: Well made, tough, and do work for helping you keep your reins. However, I do prefer my Wintec comfort grips, which hold up just as well but are easily usable without gloves.
Usefulness Rating: 0 out of 5.
