mine is thrown together from the North bar. i just use the line the north bar came with and took the rest of the stuff off. Also, i do not use a line for the stopper/prussik mess. i just grab the line, either above or below the bar, where ever is easiest at the moment and have never had a problem. for the stopper, i just use a Naish stopper, you can just screw it on and not have to take the lines off to add it.
all seems to work perfectly for me for a season, so far.

Innovative system, but I wonder how long the line will last. A lot more stress points than a regular depower line.

And I dont like the pushing back of the stopper and the fact that you still have 2 straps to pull.
