x2 on the ultra low drag factor of PVC floatline - spending couple of hours swimming into hard current with PVC is so much easier than rope [assuming low-drag float of course] and noticeably easier than heavy bungee. yes it is more fragile than HD bungee [but the heavy spectra inside survives doggies ripping it thru the coral] but cheap and easy to replace

PVC floatline connected to 3 metre 3X stretch bungee at gun end, with heatshrink over the floatline-bungee connection, super low drag and nothing to get hung up on when fish takes off
