You can use the loop through loop method and then put a small pigtail on the leading edge to reattach the bridle to the LE, using the excisting attachment loop and a larkshead. Makes the bridle smoother and makes maintenance of the blocks ( removal/clean etc.) easier.

Actually, I did use loop-loop and put a pigtail on the bridle side, rather than at the leading edge. I did it this way because it would keep the loop-loop connection farther away from the pulley.

ok...i think im gonna go ahead and do the mod for my 12 XBow....but i am a bit timid. has anyone had something go wrong? Ok...thanks for the photos fellow cuban. So all i need to do is switch lines C and 3 and add a pulley to the end of D? And about the pigtails...any adjustments for flying? i saw some talk of that. slide it up one knot? I always connect to the second. go to the third up?

Thanks a lot for the help!!!

Use 3mm line from a sailing supply shop! It'll last much longer and take the loads better.
