As I see it the weak point of this setup is the point of attatchment to the sled.
The point where the rope passes from the sled into the black PVC of the wands is exactly where the rope will wear through and break.
A clear, flexible, plastic tubing needs to cover the rope at this chafing point. The tube can be replaced when it looks nearly worn through.
P.S If the clear tubing is purposely sized longer longer you can carefully nip off above the bad spot, slit it lengthwise & discard the worn section. Then pull the good tubing down from inside the wand and just duct tape the remaing tubing to the rope to hold it in place. I'll bet it would take a good season of pulking, including giving toddlers rides, to wear through the tubing.
