Can someone please clarify whether or not a double pulley with a becket is allowed under the new rules. I've replaced my factory standard downhaul utilising a double pulley with a becket and would love to know whether or not this will pass scrutineering.

I just asked my IBRA representative for an official (re)clarification.

Jason,

You may find it's a bit cleaner to rig the downhaul with the two blocks oriented 90 degrees to each other.
I have some poor-quality photos of the way I rig my production downhaul in:

Also, a number of people are rigging the downhaul line so you can release the downhaul without having to reach forward to the mast: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=76&p=339&hilit=kvt4Ud4lPrg#p339
