    hi , when we where kids we make a zipline, and for braking we used a spring rolled in the wire, a 1,5 meters long spring from and old bed, and in the point a piece of wood with a hole , nice vids, great work, Ramiro

    Could you add an electrified wire to provide power? Or would that be implausible aka impossible?

    So you said common angle is 4° but I wanted go fast and made it 40°. It works fine but you didn't mention how to scrape my cousin from that second tree.

    1500 lb wire is not enough when you take into account torque

    Curious to know if you had any issues with the thread locker and the plastic cutting board? Many (not all)plastics breakdown when they come in contact with blue or red thread lock.

    Upvoted.

    One thing that I have seen in other zip line how-to's is to use a come-along to tension the line.

    I dont get why people can vote negativeto this videos. You are explaining everything and also you are warning about security and common sense to put this knoledge in practise. Im sorry for that 100 people so ungratefull. For those who negative vote:if you think you could do it better. Please make a video and upload. If no, just give him your comment, but why negative vote a video that could have more than 3 hour of film and editing.

    Good work and keep going.;)
