I'm still working out how to pay for, and get them to you. It will depend on how many actually commit to one. I can certainly ship 5 or so for cost, but if it gets out of hand, I'll let the manufacturer ship them.

You need to order by July 17th, 2011. See post #20. We may repeat this if there is sufficient interest, and the manufacturer agrees to another group buy. I have no financial interest in, nor am I making any money on this, so it is completely up to the manufacturer.

The item is described here

http://www.adventureengineering.com/ae/ezpull_index.cfm

This group buy is ONLY for the EZ-Pull. The manufacturer is not interested in a group buy on the BringAlong.

Also, keep in mind he's a 1 man shop, and I know he only has a few ready to ship. If you need it now, it's not going to work.

In return for doing this group buy, the manufacturer has asked that if you actually use the device in the field, that you post non copyrighted pictures here of the device in use. Some of them may end up on his website, so don't post anything you wouldn't want used in that way.

So far, the following have expressed interest. If you have expressed interest, please subscribe or watch this thread for order information. I will save me having to PM everyone on the list. I'll post a new reply as needed.

I wonder if the pulley's were custom designed or can be sourced independently? The rest is just steel wire of the appropriate gauge.

There isn't anything conceptually different from this, although the Adventure Engineering is a nicer design: http://www.amazon.com/Rope-Pulley-Bl...ef=pd_sxp_f_pt Certainly small enough to fit into a milk crate http://www.klrforum.com/showthread.php?t=20593

triple pulley systems are nothing new .. what's new is compact size combined with used of super high strength dyneema rope.

put me in line if they ever come available again ...

this would certainly work... at 4.1lb not bad @ $15 and if large metal hooks were removed that would reduce weight substantially

If it's a custom designed pulley then yeah, it's probably easily worth the $60 once you factor in your time.

I actually don't want it for riding, I want it for my elk hunting pack, super light, super compact, perfectly suited for someone hunting the backcountry solo.

ounces=pounds, pounds=pain. I definitely dont want a 4 pound block and tackle!!

It looks like Pak-meister still sells them albeit at $80 (he stepped in at about page 8 as a re-seller):
