Re: Harness and Tether Recommendations?

I kind of gathered that. A shock tether would have an "absorber" built of several folded over layers sewed together with a weak thread that is designed to break and allow the layers to unfold and slow your descent.

I was more wondering what the ultimate length of that elasticized tether is. As I will be mostly single handing (at least at first) This is very much on my list of things to buy before going out on the water
