The secret to the LB Quad is the special wire holders that allow the welding wire to move freely around the spreaders in high winds. This prevents the wires from breaking and also allows the wire to be easily tensioned correctly. The 5 band 2 ele quad requires 40 of these special wire holders. Apparently they are made out of piece parts from hydraulic brake assemblies. A very unique and I must say, outstanding idea for holding the wires in place.
There are more pictures of the special wire holders later in the Blog.
