Can I use a spring instead of the bungee brake system?

A Spring Brake can be used as a cushion with the Stop Block on lines with a 3% slope.   Spring brakes are generally used for short zip lines 100 FT or less. For longer than 100 FT zip lines or where the slope is 4%-6%, you will need a Bungee Brake System.
