The bungee leash looks good too. Simple and straightforward. I made a similar leash but made it too short. Buying the materials to make this kind of thing in small quantities hardly works out as economical compared to what NSI is charging for the leash--I probably have more than 50 bucks in hollow webbing, bungee cord and spectra. Buying one premade for $35 a pretty good deal.

Plastic buckle. To me that means it can't be relied on as a waist leash. I use plastic buckles a lot for things that either have secondary ways of staying attached or aren't important if they fail.

I figure these guys can sell plastic buckles to freshwater folks all day long.

For salt we just need to sew a Velcro strip over the buckle as a backup/safety. Any tailor or shoe repair could do it. But eventually someone should make one.
