--- Hi i converted my 7.0 AR 3.5 to 4Lines and like it. You need a
depower sheeting trap. I bought mine from Andy at www.kitehigh.com
Got Air Rush depower, a reel leach for the board and line knife.
I took off my Sling Shot Chicken Loop off because cant use two loops
in a wichard snap shackle quick release. The Air Rush sheeting strap
works good because you can lock powered or depowered . Now make all
4 lines same lenght, your two center depower lines attached to
sheeting strap and set that trap fully powered meaning all 4 lines are
set up at same lenght . Now when you pull down on strap it will pull
down the two center lines that are set on your leading hedge by about
10" there for complete depowred is set and bring strap back up to
power up again. Now all sheeting system are different lenght so if you
need to you could ad a small rope to the end of it to make all leader
& line equal. Good luck
