      Not if you use Q-Power line. Take a look at the latest "Version 2" MelMods
      photos under "Mel's Stuff" in the files.

      Or you can pass it beside the harness lines, to the side of your harness, or
      pass it over the bar, or better yet eliminate it completely by letting the
      adjustment strap double as a leash (see MelMods Version 2).

      But not as short as....

      By the way, front line leashes work for any sled, including ARCs. Maybe I
      should note that on my photos.

      You've just described the way mine's set up. Check out the photos. You may
      want to read the recent related posts ("MelModsII" I think) which describe
      my previous system which works fine but still requires a leash.
