ThinLine Reins are a combination of high quality english leather and no slip ThinLine material wrapped around a flexible nylon core for superior grip and strength. The ThinLine material is superior to rubber because it won’t break down after just a few schooling sessions. ThinLine reins won’t slip and won’t get sticky like rubber reins.
- Nylon core provides superior strength
- ThinLine material for a secure grip that won’t break down
- Reins use English leather for both end types unless you specify the less expensive Indian (from India) leather
- 3/4″ Thick
- Soft to the touch, molds to your fingers
- Easier to clean than leather or rubber reins
What is the ThinLine Material?
We claim the ThinLine material used to make these reins is superior to rubber. We make this claim after testing out these reins for several months. They held up better than Nunn Finer rubber reins. ThinLine material begins as a liquid during the manufacturing process. The microscopic ThinLine cells are poured into a mold then polarized so each cell lies end to end, creating a tunnel. Another layer of liquid ThinLine material is poured onto the top of the first layer, then polarized in the opposite direction. This zig-zag process is repeated multiple times creating a honeycomb matrix. This matrix is extremely strong and soft to the touch, allowing the ThinLine reins to flex and stretch without getting worn out.
When your ThinLine reins are being used, they will conform to your fingers. The material softens at body temperature and returns to its normal shape at room temperature. Unlike gel reins or imitations, ThinLine reins are lightweight, won’t make your hands sweat and will conform to your fingers without being too soft. ThinLine reins are also anti-fungal which is cool if you’re sharing your tack.
