Hi everybody,

I recently bought H17 and I wonder if it is possible to put two trapeze wires on each side of this cat. Will it cause too much tension for the mast or is it ok?

Did you try to to this with your cats? Does it require any additional work/chanages to the mast or would it be enough to just add additional wire to the mast tang?

Regards,

Marcin

I think the mast could take the strain - it's more robust than the 16s mast. I've never seen a double trapeze on a 17 before, though.

I think the limiting factor would be weight on the wings.

MBounds, thanks for the reply. What is the maximum weight capacity of the wings?

The max wings load is listed at 350 lbs.
