Backyard Zipline Gear: Ziplinegear Quicksilver Kit

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

The Quicksilver kit hooks directly to the included harness for an intense and safe ride through the trees. The Quicksilver trolley itself is the heart of the system, with a blazing maximum speed of 120 miles per hour, sealed dual-bearing wheels, and a braking strength of 10,000 pounds. For the price, you get a spool of cable, the braking system, harness, and tree anchoring equipment. The only thing you need is a tensioning tool, which you can borrow from Ziplinegear and mail back. The kit is available in lengths between 150 and 500 feet, and it can hold up to 350 pounds.

PRICE: $460 (for 150-foot kit)
