DescriptionThe Launcher Leash by Greg Thomas
The Launcher Leash is a unique and exceptionally effective strength and aerobic conditioning device for trained raptors such as Red-tailed Hawks, Goshawks, Harris' Hawks and large Falcons. Using the proven concept of regular, progressive weight training, the Launcher Leash produces significant increases in strength, aerobic capacity, and confidence in a trained hawk.
The Launcher Leash consists of a five foot length of flexible latex tubing filled with lead shot. One end is clamped shut and the other is terminated with a trigger snap connector for easy on/off attachment to jesses or swivel. The complete assembly weighs approximately 13.5 oz., or 383 grams.
Instructions are included which explain how to measure and guide your hawk through fitness training with the Launcher Leash.
