This is done by a pin and pulley system. The specifications of the Monster Slinger are:

This is a great addition to your home gym to train your back, triceps, and lats without having the same cost and space requirements as with a lat pull down. 
 

Pros of the Rogue Monster slinger

 
The setup doesn’t take up a lot of space and is cheap compared to getting full lat pull down.
 

Cons of the Rogue Monster Slinger

 
The bands tend to break over time and need to be replaced. The resistance is also not as stable and concentrated as with a normal lat pull with the weight plates.
 

Alternatives to the Monster Slinger

 
Alternatives to the Rogue Monster Slinger are 
 
 
The Infinity and Monster lite versions of the Slinger do the same trick for the respective product lines from Rogue as Monster Slinger for the Monster series. 
 
The monster lat pull-down will give you a seat and sturdier set up to do your lat pulldowns. It can also be used for rowing movements. The resistance will be easier to determine and control but less natural and chaotic. 
 
The crown pull up bar is an alternative to the Slinger if you are mainly interested in strict pull-ups to build grip and upper body strength. 
 

Summary for the Monster Slinger

 
The Rogue monster Slinger is very versatile in its use cases and very innovative. Compared to the other lat pull-down options it saves space and money. If you want to go really heavy on your rows and lat pulls the monster lat pull down machine might be the better choice.
