I had the brass clip at the end of a NSI Reel leash break under load causing what was left of it to impact my lower leg at mach 3..
I'm surprised this happened with a REEL leash! (especially since the clip is on the RIDER side of the short bungie)
Thinkin' about a new way to connect the reel leash to the board leash using a slip knot in order to eliminate any more metal projectiles..
Maybe a lark's head, bent-pin-in-Velcro, bent-pin-in-tube, sliding pin, or even just plain double-Velcro (as used on surfboard leashes).
