Backyard Zipline Gear: Petzl Tandem Speed Transport Pulley

My kids have convinced me to rig up a zipline on our property, but I don't know where to start. Got any ideas?

Made in France, Petzl’s Tandem Speed works well as the main trolley for an advanced backyard zipline system. Like the C.A.M.P. Wing, the Speed accepts cables up to 15/16 inches in diameter and has a maximum speed of 45 miles per hour. But instead of using a locking mechanism, the Speed is a simpler device, allowing removal from the zipline only after you unclip your carabiner. It's also lighter, at just 9.5 ounces.

PRICE: $85
