The two speed system works by pulling one side (either side) for 6:1 purchase, and both sides simultaneously for 3:1. Same total amount of line as a regular 6:1. Advantage is that when unloaded (dead run but coming up onto the wind for example) you can pull both in together for quicker sheeting, and then just pull one side once the load increases. Same applies unloading.

Re: 4:1 or 6:1 Mainsheet System

Thanks for the help everyone...I'm going to contact Garhauer and see if they have a better picture or diagram on that so I can see clearer how it works and make a decision from there. Then I just have to figure out how much line I need.
