Why not save some time and just put a noose on each end? ;). If the viz is so bad I can't see my buddy, I probably won't be diving unless I'm looking for treasure or something and then I'll be solo.

1" Nylon webbing with bolt snaps at the ends works reasonably well. (picture a double-ended dog leash)

That said, I agree that if things are so bad I need to use a buddy line, I'm generally going to thumb the dive.
