Straight Dance Concho Drag

We've created this concho drag for straight dancers, our latest affordable alternative for dancers on a tight budget. We've used German silver or brass conchos, mounted on a sturdy black or natural color leather base that won't twist or flip around when dancing.

This concho drag compares to the traditional choices of a real otter fur drag for $350+ or a stamped & punched hairplate concho set for $250+.

Black Leather Concho Drags $150 (Shown at left)
Natural Leather Concho Drag $140
