In your honest opinion how durable do you think the skin will be and did the gloss finish help with durability.

Nice grips Billy.

Mel at Dog Grips made mine. (both pair, that Defender on his homepage is mine) They are surprisingly durable. The gloss more-so than the flat finish but the gloss doesn't provide the purchase.

Like Mel says, "They don't wear out, the wear in." The Prairie Rattler were like an old pair of Levi jeans, comfortable and confident while lookin' good.

I will have another pair made in slims for my Commander.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
