Answer: 
I would not advise anyone to install a zip line with out having an engineers input. The amount of stress put on the anchor is a combination of the weight of the wire, the wind resistance of the wire, and the dynamic stress from the supported weight. No layman can figure these accurately.

16 in. Steel Folding Ring Spiral Ground Anchor is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh, hit and miss Of the four I bought to anchor our trampoline in a climate that uses them as kites, 1 is sunk and anchored all the way, one is all but 3" in the ground, one is about 10" in, the other I gave up on. If the ground is rocky, good luck! I got one sunk all the way in, put the strap on it, but when I cinched it, it pulled right out of the ground. With the right ground, these would be great, the one I got all the way is pretty strurdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solidly constructed and hold extremely well in sandy soil. These were purchased to anchor a 14' trampoline. I researched several styles and manufacturers and these appeared to be the best. My assumption proved true. We live in SW Florida where the soil would pass for sandbox material in the North. These anchors were easy to start but really dug in the last 8", requiring an 18' breakover bar to cinch them flush with the ground in thick, St. Augustine grass. We can remove the straps, move the trampoline for mowing, and not worry about hitting the rings on these as they fold flush with the top plate below the grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked better than I thought I bought these to use as tie-downs under a small cabin I am building. I was very surprised at how well they started to thread their way into the ground. After a few turns it got to hard to turn by hand so I inserted a 1/2" steel spike in ring for leverage and that got things going again. I hit rocks each time but kept up the pressure and got each anchor completely installed. They also seem very well made and I considered it a good deal all around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice I purchased 10 of these to put in my RV for various purposes. I have a screen that comes off my awning and at 20 feet long I use 4 of them for that alone. Also perfect for the screen tent. They didn't earn a 5 star for me because over the course of the summer of 2015, I had 3 of them break at the weld during the install. The price is also a bit steep for what you are getting. I have to admit though, they sure beat a tent stake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution Have an 8 ft blue spruce that was leaning significantly due to improper planting and wet soil. Inserted two ground anchors and used tie-down strapping to upright the tree and then add soil to the base. Quick and easy...tree is now upright and will leave the anchors in place until the roots take hold. The design of the spiral made it a snap to insert the strapping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ground anchor Very good product. Like the feature allowing you to fold this flat when not using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for basketball pole I used two of these anchors and a ratchet tie down strap to stabilize our new portable basketball hoop. It works perfectly and is so sturdy. We used this setup rather than filling the bb base so that we can easily move the system in the winter. I think it's sturdier now than if you only filled the base.
