I like the options but I am not excited about having to sit down at a bench with a brand new bar and put it together.

Whoa, hang on. A few years back they changed the center hole lining from metal to plastic to reduce wear on the depower line (which is the same material as most or all rope sliders), but the rope slider chicken loop replacement has a metal jacket? Wtf? Am I missing something?

Completely different loading. The rope would chew through the chicken loop plastic in no time
