What type of a line do you use for this?
Any small rope that will handle the load will work, I just used some small nylon rope.
The length of the line is key in controlling the load, longer is better than shorter. If your load has a lot of wind resistance a shorter line can be used.

I always wondered why crane operators would always run their booms all the way out and up then run down what looks like a tremendous long length of cable to move a small load. I guess the long length gives it stability.
Any crane operators out their to confirm my suspicions?
