i've been thinking about this for a while now and decided to give it a try. i went to tractor supply and bought a 27', 2" ratchet strap, and a couple lengths of chain, and 2 commercial/industrial carabiners. i hooked it up between 2 trees yesterday and gave it a whirl. way harder than it looks. but i'm hooked.
so, is anybody else here in to it?
Been wanting to buy one for years, looks so fun. Every summer I say it'll be this summer.
It'll be this summer!
I wanna do it more. It's fucking hard. I climb, and most of my climbing friends are into slackline, they kinda go together well. I have a couple buddies who slackline over giant canyons and stuff, it's crazy:
Every summer I say it'll be this summer.
I would certainly like to learn it! Perhaps I will get off my a$$ and try it this summer...I really want to.
Not to intimidate anyone, but check it out...

for everyone who is interested, i'd say give it a try. i modified my setup yesterday and spent about 20 minutes on it before the rain started.
I got one for myself and my son at Christmas. I am now thinking about where to put it up. Our two trees are way too big around. I am going to build a framework that does not use trees. Hopefully soon we will be slacking. If we get good we can slack next winter in the snow too.
