°hf Bungee Cowtails are brilliant multi tools for experienced paddlers in rescue situations.
A cowtail can be used:
as a towline to get an exhausted swimmer back to safety quickly
as a connecting point to your own chest harness in a pin situation
as a quick and safe way to clip yourself to a throwline in a livebait rescue
as an anchor point for a pulley and much more
Important safety notice: do not use a cowtail for gear recovery from your kayak!
