I think this is a great choice if you want a set of various-sized bungee cords. The plastic coated hooks are really nice, and the curve in the hooks is not too narrow. The plastic coating covers the hook completely and extends to cover the knot in the cord as well. No scratches! And I love that feature!The thickness of the cords is perfect and so is the stretch: Tight, but just enough stretch to provide a tight hold on whatever you are covering. My last set of bungee cords looked and acted just like this-and they've lasted over a decade. I do not leave them out in the weather and I store them carefully.These look like they will last a long time, and I'm very happy with the stretch, the covered hooks and knots and the value!
