has anyone else got one of these...

just bought one for neddie, and the fillet string seems ridicously long.... so long in fact that it was hanging down so much I took it off as i was scared it would get caught on something...

are they all like this?

Oh dear, I ordered one online on friday. It hasnt arrived yet so yet to see whether the fillet string is long. I think you can buy fillet strings seperately so might be worth swapping them.

well i am off to the tack shop tommorow to get one.... the length of the fillet string was more the length of a strap that goes round the leg!

Yep, I have 2 of them, and another 2 on order. The fillet strings do seem long, and I can't remember whether I cut to length or doubled them over now

Will have to check tonight.

They are smashing rugs for the price though...you won't be disappointed

i love the slumberdown range. Fillet strings are massive but i cut mine down to the length of the plastic tube that covers it to keep it from getting soiled! Works fine and is a perfect length now!

I agree, I bought mine last year in a sale and wish I'd bought more - fantastic rugs - much much better than some of the other big brands! Doesn't move an inch and really snug. Can't rememebr about the fillet string either but don't seem to recall it being an issue though.

Do these rugs come up quite big? My ned is in between a 6'9 and a 7'0 so I've ordered the bigger size as hes quite chunky with big shoulders.

The bigger of my two wears a 6'9"...he's a 16.3hh WB and reasonably long bodied. Don't know if that helps.

mine only had his on one night and it rubbed a load of hair off just behind his chest on both sides
