I just bought my first bass boat and I'm going to buy two short ropes for quick tying to the dock. I've found two different brands that look pretty easy to use. Which of these would you suggest, or is there another that works better?

Also, would 4ft or 5ft be a better length?

I have a friend that uses the airhead and likes it. I prefer just a normal rope myself
