Rob Allen Float Bungee 3m
This Rob Allen Float Bungee is 3m long. The elongation limit is 3 x the relaxed rubber length. This is because of the 270kg Dyneema security line which links to the black end loops. With a9m relaxed length, this bungee will therefore stretch to a maximum of 9m.
The quality TPE line expresses strength and flexibility, meeting all Australian standards such as UV and Solvent resistance, limiting the wear and tear of the line in all conditions.

Why use a bungee:
A floatline bungee connects between the float line and the float. When hunting big fish, bungees provide significant additional line when fully stretched, while simultaneously providing a strong yet gentle braking action. The reason for this is to provide that extra give when fighting a large fish.
Imagine you shot a large pelagic fish and have to let your speargun go to breathe. The fish will try get away and take off, sometimes at high speeds with bursts of power.
These bursts put a strain on your float line. There’s also the risk of ripping the spear from the fish itself. A bungee on the other hand, will give that strong yet gentle braking action. This ensures the fish does not rip its self from the spear.
