Hotline Stage 3 Big Wave Leash Question not a reviewReview by Ignore the Rating (for now). Ignore the Rating (for now).
Just picked two of these up, sight unseen, leashes seem great, I like the fat leash cup!

Question = the swivel metal (the eye of it) is exposed where the rail saver ties onto it, has anyone ever experienced board damage from it? It seems to me like it could come into contact with the board during the normal board thrashings that go on while out.
-attaching it leash to a new board, so I think you know the feeling/worry.

Hotline Stage 3 Big Wave Leash The BestReview by AipaBoy AipaBoy
I work these leashes with my floaty Aipa on trips to El Salvador. Powerful waves and I must say this leash saved me once in waves that I shouldn't have been out it in. Any other product would have snapped like a twig but the Hotline kept me safe. Thanks for the great product.

Hotline Stage 3 Big Wave Leash They should tie better knotsReview by amichell amichell
I bought two of these leashes; one for me and one for my wife. On our last outing, her leash snapped in some shoulder height waves in Pacifica and she was pretty freaked out to come up from under water and her board was headed for the beach. She got out of the water ok. I wasn't impressed to see that it was a pre-tied knot that had come undone. There are 2 places in this leash where you should replace the pre-tied knots with something better. I've used a square knot and they haven't come undone again. Hotline should try to improve on this. No other complaints about the leash other than the knots.

Hotline Stage 3 Big Wave Leash For when it counts...Review by Tillamook Jake Tillamook Jake
This is the best leash for bigger boards ridden in bigger waves, hands down. Hotline leashes are tied and sewed much more like actual rigging. The marine grade swivel is 600# test. They are hand made in Santa Cruz, California and don't have any plastic connections like most other brands.

Hotline Stage 3 Big Wave Leash OUTSTANDING PRODUCT!!!Review by "Doc" Watson "Doc" Watson
I started my "Wipeout Career" in the early 60's. After leashes came out commercially I've snagged one of just about every brand over the years. Josh's crew advised I get this Hotline a couple of years ago. ALL my boards have them now! ABSOLUTELY the best under the most Knarly conditions!! My biggest Tanker snapped a New Dakine last year & the Hotline has gone through worse without a hitch!! Doc

Hotline Stage 3 Big Wave Leash Hand tied by one guy who actually surfs and cares!Review by Josh Gizdavich - Owner Josh Gizdavich - Owner
In my Surf Shop career (33 years) I’ve sold literally tens of thousands of leashes from most brands imaginable. Dakine – FCS – Prolite – Hotline – Ocean & Earth – Block – Channel Islands – On A Mission – and so on and so on. Here in my home town we surf a rocky beach (very large boulders) and a broken leash can mean anything from a broken fin to a completely totaled board (plus I don’t like swimming in “the food chain”). All that said, my choice goes to Hotline leashes. This is the leash that rarely breaks, or is rarely returned for warranty. Every Hotline leash is hand tied by one guy who actually surfs and cares! J-Bay (Jeff Scott) is actually owner Brenda Scott’s brother and has been with Hotline since the beginning (1979).

Great Job – surfing and building surf leashes. Enough said.
