+1 on this... Tex speaks from experience - trick release... if safety is your concern, don;t go cheap on it - the medical bills are far higher than the cost of a release.

Don't even ask me how much i spent this year fixing my right arm due to an injury that took place 2 years ago (handle popped back into the boat and hit me)... Noone skis behind my boat ever again without a shock tube now. Seriously.
You know they all have a little string hanging out, but it's not a tampon, it's a price tag...
