Hey everybody,
Ive been slackin' off for a little over a year now, and in this whole time I have been using the Elington System (Pardon the spelling).. Have been very pleased with it but I am starting to hit up on those longer lines and I realize I need pulleys!!!!!!!!!! I have been looking around this and Slacklining.com and I cant find any good Pictures to look at how it is really set up... I have seen ColdClimb's Complicated System but it really doesnt help me out much!! if I can get a better picture of Witten direction that may help out a lot!!!
Thanks in advance,
Biffjr

Here are a couple pictures of compound systems like Coldclimb is using in that photo.

Cold's is more like the top one, except that instead of having a 2:1 in the middle he's got a slack jack (6:1)...at least, that's what I saw....but either way, there you go.

Yeah, my complicated system in that pic is just that... complicated. Niles' pics will give you a better idea of how MA works, and if you play with it a couple times, you should build the knowledge to piece together much more complicated ones yourself, which is of course just plain fun. Good luck man!
