"Firstly compared to other bungees I've had these seem thin and a bit weedy for the job. The plastic end hooks don't inspire much confidence, but having said that none have snapped yet. The elastic itself doesn't have as much stretch as others I've owned. Secondly the lengths of the bungees isn't brilliant - I'd rather have had fewer but longer, rather too many short bungees with few realistic uses. Still they were cheap!"
