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.
