Perfect Bungee - Review
Naming your product "The Perfect Bungee" takes some stones.
The company that makes them is called Just Ducky and they were nice enough to send us a handful of these bungees to test out. We tossed them in the truck and for the past couple of months we've been strapping down lumber and all kinds of other things with them. Here's what we thought...
First of all, these aren't your average bungee cords. They're made of polyurethane and are constructed so that they won't crack or become brittle over time. They're also really stretchy, being able to extend to about twice their length. The coolest part is that they're not only a lot of different sizes, but a number of different head configurations as well. It's worth the time to go to the Just Ducky website and browse the selection. Because of this whacked-out design theory, there are an almost infinite number of things you can do with these bungees. It's really only limited by your imagination.
They're also guaranteed for-evah, which shows quite a bit of confidence on the part of the manufacturer, particularly when you take into account what brutish and short lives that most bungees lead.
So like we said, we had them in the truck and they were good to have as an option for light to medium-duty strapping. When it comes to larger lumber runs and sheet goods, we're never going to stray from the all-powerful ratchet strap. But there are definitely times when it's a hassle to get out the ratchets and deal with the process that comes along with them. For those times, we went for the Perfect Bungees, and always with success.
We felt that using them primarily in the back of a truck was underselling them a bit, when you look at their website, you can see all kinds of other applications for them from camping to boating.
It looks for the most part that they are $4 or $5 apiece if bought separately. There are some sets available. It's more expensive than the standard bungee, but we found them to be great for our needs and definitely versatile and durable, so if you're in the market, we'd definitely recommend picking up a few. Are they perfect...maybe, but if they're not, they're the best we've ever seen.
