Well, it's still brilliant. Way better than I could do in my shop. I've thought about one with a little trampoline underneath to simulate pop too. Never figured it out or tried it though.

Hats off.

Very nice, but you could simply use latex tubing to make a sheeting system that would bring the bar up high when you let go and allow you to pull it down to sheet in.

Do you really need all the ladders?

I like your ingenuity, but all that is. Is a pull up bar with a sheeting system. You could do board off hanging an old bar off anything. A trampoline and bar with lines is a much better simulator. You can work rotations, and passes.

Just shows you don't need a kite to do monkey stuff.

Works well under a tree, with a banana.

It looks really good. Do you train with it ? Has it helped?
