is he on crack?
Sure, theoretically you can push the line away from you against that little metal hoop and get some advantage, but in doing so you also double the friction, reduce available muscle power to do the job by 75%, and take your weight out of the equation. Basic ergonomics.
Why would I want 3:1 purchase with only 50N force input instead of 2:1 with 200N plus my weight?
Do the math...
For the 7th or 8th time, please offer above the bar again...
And less clunky sinking metal, please.
