All Nordkyn ganglines are made of hollow braid polyethylene, tougher and more flexible than polypropylene. They behave better in extreme cold, stretch less, and are more abrasion resistant. Heavy duty 3/4" bronze snaps come on all tugs, with lighter 1/2" snaps on necklines. All snaps are easily replaced on the trail. Center, shock, and snublines are 3/8" ; tuglines and necklines are 1/4".
Tug lines are the term used for the line which connects the sled dog to the main gangline. The tug is often a different colour to the main gangline to help in resolving tangles quickly.
Tuglines need to be long lasting and high wearing to take the constant pounding expected.
Necklines are used to connect two dogs together when running side by side to reduce tangles and achieve better control.
The tug can be used with our shockline for use of sled dog rigs or dog scooters or with our canicross bungee for jogging with your dog.
