My snubber is a fairly large length of old mooring line (also served as splicing practice), not especially stretchy but it's main purpose is to take the load off the windlass, and secondly to avoid the noise we'd have in light air as the chain between the bow roller and windlass lifted and fell back down on the deck. I hook the snubber then run the windlass "down" a bit to slack the chain. It's also just short enough to keep the hook out of water, also limiting the stretch. One day I'll get around to replacing it with 3-strand.
