Not my photo/picture but I am looking for a similar heavy duty coiled bungee like the red one in the picture.  Is it homemade?  What materials would be suitable/similar? Currently using cut straight bungee but coil is the way to go. Thanks!

You're looking for a "Dragan Tail".  They were made by a guy in central Jersey and his last name was the inspiration for their name.  Well made and quite popular at one time.

Gotcha I have seen Dragon Tails and they are not nearly as thick as the picture.  VS I know makes one but also not nearly as thick.

Search YouTube for "coiled lanyard cord".  Bunch of videos to make coiled lanyards from .095 Weedeater-type line.  They can be sheathed with paracord sheathing, but not necessary.

Google "handset cord"  plenty of images and you can even purchase it.

But is there an issue with rusting out the cord on the inside?  Definitely a viable option.

One in the picture looks like it could be a coiled surf or bodyboard leash honestly.

Ahhhhhh that is the other route I was going to go.  It does look like a kayak leesh I have on my touring yak

Forget the coiled lanyards! The best I have used so far. Evel Stevel.

If I could find this coiled I would go for it.  I have a similar setup but my rod seems to tangle when this is hanging around landing a fish.  Definitely good though

Older car cell phone charger cord makes the best bungee you can make

Aluminum crimps from home depot and some heat shrink tube, easy and cheap. 

I have lanyards that are well over 10 years old and still work great
