Hey does anyone know the difference between these slingshot 5th line add-ons? I've been looking for a used slingshot and some have oneline, some have atl. Are they the same thing?

oneline attatches to the leading edge of the kite.

atl works off of the trailing edge.

if your only snowkiting I'd get the atl. if your going to be using your kite on the water...get the fifth line.

before you actually use either one make sure you read up on them or have someone show you how they work so you know they're set up properly and you can use them to your advantage.

5th line works fine for snowkiting too. One thing about the 5th line though is that if the kite hindenburgs, and twist as it falls, the 5th line could "wrap" around the kite and end you session with a swim.
