Cheap homemade alternative to banshee bungee?
does anybody know of a relatively cheap way to make something similar to a banshee bungee?
No idea, but I'd sure say to make sure your materials are strong and you avoid the ol' bungee-to-the-face trick.
No-poles, free souls.
i made one using surgical tubing (the brownish hollow stuff) by braiding 3 pieces together and tying it to a wakeboard handle. it worked decently well, but didnt pull as fast as a real banshee. also, it began cracking almost immediately from the cold, whereas banshee rubber is vulcanized and therefore much more durable.
ah i see is there any way to make it pull faster? like add more surgical tubes?
also how long till it broke?
threads to see how this turns out, also cant afford the banshee!
cracks started forming after 2 sessions so i stopped using it because i didnt want the thing to snap while i was holding one end of it. and i imagine more tubes or thicker gauge tubes would work better.
where did you get the tubes?
