I've got a standard leather crosspull and love it
I've used it about 30 times (maybe more) and there isn't any sign of wear anywhere on it. I try to clean it after every other ride and I do thing the cross straps will wear out eventually (it's just what happens when leather is constantly being pulled through metal rings
I use my own reins.
Go ahead and get one - there's a 30 day no quibble money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose
