I made some leashes, tried them out, total tangled nightmare, could have been my death sentence, luckily a more experienced kayaker clued me in, I ended up using 20# mono for my leashes and only used heavy line for my poles, was a good catch anyhow.

Seems a little light to me.
A bad day fishing is still better than a good day at work.

The idea is you can break it if you need to, you can replace your gear, your body, you can't .

Yea and you go lock down the drag on one shark and then drop your rod and that 20# going brake before your 60#80 main line. bye bye gear.

 Just go spend the $20 a leash and get the good ones off like with the release clips. One of the best kayak fishing investments I've made. Sure i could have made some home made leashes but these are very nice and convenient and have lasted me for years.

Thanks Lp , I did leash my poles with  120# bottom line , glad I did  cause I got a double strike and may have lost the rig, got them both in the boat, I will look into leashes for my poles, my buddy showed me his, he runs a 9/0, I run a  penn 9500 and 10500 so I couldn't use the same setup, I agree poles need to be secured, I don't feel it is worth it to leash all my gear with heavy line , then  get hulied by some beast and end up tangled and possibly drown because of all that cord.

I have the rod bungee coed from go bananas,but they seem to get in the way when on the spinning rods.  I have them below the reel. Does anyone put them one different.
