Did you not get instructions with your line? If you didn't, try to download them from the site again. Make sure you are on a high spped server. Good luck!

Why oh why would anyone pay extra $$$ for this ???

Russ, I explained via phone how top set one up when you were at T's house... How was that set up ???

I use webbing with 2 biners clove hitched in to get a 3:1 advantage, and finish with a mule knot. My line has only 1' of drop in 30' of walkable line.

Meh, I feel the same way Adam. I'm not sure why anyone would buy one...unless you're the type of person without the time or effort to make one and put it up yourself.

Anyway, good luck with the line. If you have a lot of trouble try emailing them at info@ethosclimbing.com or calling them at 816.914.3317 (tech support).

Much less time required to set up mine, as all the rigging for the more "advanced systems" require time to set up.

My wife and I can set mine up between two trees in less than two minutes.

Adam, I did figure out how to use the set up T got...the only prob was that her second anchor was not good enough and I started to pull her clothesline that was cemented into the ground out of the ground.

She ahs set hers up with Mark now, and I know how to set hers up, so that was no biggy.

Mostly I am getting one of thiers casue I like to support our advertisers and get new gear. I could have gone down to buy teh webbing adn stuff, but I wanted to help support those that support us. That is the biggest reason why I did it. Shoudl be here today and hopefully I will get some pix soon.

The reason is that I would have to take mine up and down every day because I have no trees in my yard. I dont want to have to undo knots everyday.

The reason adm4now (my son) doesn't have any instructions with his line is because he is borrowing the won Etho's sent me and I couldn't find the instructions before I dropped him at the airport. I wanted him to learn how to set it up and show his friends in his neighborhood about slacklining.

Austin is one of the next generation slackliners (he's good) and want to make sure he's taught correctly. Mainly: padding trees, what kind of trees NOT to use and where you absolutely can not use trees (Jtree).

Anyway, I found the instructions but you havn't been home for a few weeks...... must be at your cousins.

Call me.

Love ya, Dad (Ammon)
