Setting Up Your Dynamic Range X1: A Guide to Installing the Paracord and Line Tensioning System

Introduction: The Dynamic Range X1 offers an unparalleled shooting experience, but to harness its full potential, proper setup is crucial. One of the most vital components is the Paracord and Line Tensioning System. In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to ensure a smooth and safe installation.


Step-by-Step Installation of the Paracord and Line Tensioning System:


1. Choose Your Fixed Points: Start by identifying two fixed points that will define the path of your moving target. These should be elevated enough to ensure the target doesn't touch the ground when moving, especially considering the line's natural sag. Remember, you can use the natural topography of your location to your advantage.

2. Lay Out the Paracord: Unwind your paracord, laying it out on the ground, stretching between the two chosen points. This step helps you visualize the path your target will take and ensures you have enough cord length.


3. Secure the Downrange End: Using the provided paracord loop and carabiner, attach the downrange end of the paracord to your designated fixed point. This ensures a firm anchor point for your system.

4. Set Up the Tensioner System: On the up-range side, it's time to introduce the tensioner system. Feed the paracord through the tensioner as per the diagram provided in your Dynamic Range X1 package. This unique system offers a mechanical advantage, allowing you to achieve high tension in the cord. If you're working with a shorter span, the locking cam might provide enough tension by itself.

Safety First! A word of caution: The line tensioning system of the Dynamic Range X1 is powerful. While it's designed to provide the necessary tension for optimal performance, it's crucial not to overtighten. Always wear safety goggles and gloves during the installation process. The tension in the line, if mishandled, could potentially project objects or parts of the system if it snaps.


Conclusion: With the Paracord and Line Tensioning System correctly installed, you're one step closer to unlocking the full potential of your Dynamic Range X1. Remember, safety first, and always refer back to the user manual if in doubt. Happy shooting!
