Slightly old topic but relevant to me: I'm going to move to a 6:1 and I see there are actually several downhaul systems listed in the 2013 catalog I'm looking at.
- There is the 2089 6:1 kit looking like it uses Carbo blocks.
- There are the metal-frame 228/231 blocks
- There are the metal-frame swivel/single/double blocks as components of the "Power downhaul system"
Zach's setup looks like he used larger blocks and the lower does not have a becket, so I assume that is not one of the three systems above.
Why so many systems? Are the second two listings just replacement parts for earlier versions? Is there any reason to buy the 228/231 over the 2089 kit?
