Does anyone have a picture of the correct way to thread a line through a 6:1 down haul?
Thanks!

Although the factory picture is this:

The best way to do it is like the 6:1 low profile mainsheet. Turn the top block 90 degrees to the bottom.

I just went through the same debate with my on mine.

I ended up doing it like the factory picture because I didn't come up with enough room at the goosneck for the upper block to be able to twist 90 degrees.. Although there is no need for it to be able to go block to block...


Was I missing something?
