Silicone Scunci break away bungee

Not my idea but these work great. Thanks Josh!

The bright colors really glow. They are the first thing you see when you are getting close to your (already shot) fish esp if murky, deep or in the kelp and trying to locate a tied up fish.

Once stretched out, they thin out nicely and don't take up too much line release space. This is really nice on pin-style line releases

They don't put too much pressure on your line release even with a lot of stretch on them.

They are cheap, last long enough and are super quick to change out.

Thanks for the tip. Also, silicone wont go all gummy and disintegrate like it often happens with natural rubber/latex.

Re: Silicon Scunci break break away bungee

Another plus for this system is that you don't need to use a bungie anymore. This one little .05 cent device takes the place of a $10 muzzle bungie.

Yes. Have been using them exclusively (i.e. no muzzle bungie) as part of my spearing for 25 years. You need very little tension to hold line. ANY woman's hair scrunci will do.
