    A lashing may be in order for that application.
    Or, possibly make a single loop closed with a double fisherman's knot. That will hold shock cord also.

    Is it going to be a fixed line?

    I used a couple halfhitches to tie the 3/4" bungee brake line to the angleiron stakes for my backyard zipline. Has been holding well...my brother (220lbs) hit close to 30 - 40 kph!!

    For a knot in bungee cord? I've never had a problem with a bowline. You could do a double figure 8 as well, the kind where you tie a fig 8 knot then follow it back the way you came leaving a loop at the end. Or double the bungee and tie a fig 8. leaving a loop at the end.
    Good luck,

    +1 on bowline. Use a Yosemite Finish if you're worried about it coming undone. (Google will show you how)

    i just did the bowline. i was avoiding it because i was used to these coming undone easy, but theres plenty of bight (get it) to hold so im good.

    yay. now i just hope theyre long enough to do what i was hoping to do.
