Title: Cascade kicker
Post by: stephenscriven on January 18, 2021, 11:18:17 AM
Is it better when making up a cascade kicker too have a larger diameter block on the boom. Or is it okay to use same size blocks

The physical size of the block is not too important - as long as it is appropriate for the rope/wire that is used. However the boom block carries twice the load of any other block so it MUST be able to cope with that load. A high load block may well be needed.
