6:1 (two triples) has to be reeved a certain way--done in such a manner that the two blocks end-up 90 degrees to one another. Otherwise it won't run cleanly, I'm told. One of the two blocks must have a becket.

Look at the 6:1 reeved right angle here, on Harken's site. (Somewhere I think they have a bigger, more detailed, image, but I can't find it, right off.)
