Kickstarter: Pure Slacklines
2:39:21 PM
Hi guys, I started a project in July to design a better 1-inch slackline option without ratchets after not being able to find one myself.
Soon I also found out that all existing tree protection was pretty poor so I borrowed a friend's sewing machine and started prototyping.
The result are 3 kits that are now in production and I've made a video explaining everything too. Check it out here:
If you know someone that might like it, please share it around!

Looks nice, light & streamlined :)
If you're after a non-ratchet setup for yourself, my favourites are the SBI pulleys, super quick and easy to use. they stopped making them a while ago but one of the dudes i was jumping with in KL this year has just bought the company to bring it back to life:

Nice, I was looking at the Rock Exotica Mini Double pulleys. Will definitely check those out too!

I've used the rock exotica pulleys for rigging/rope access and they are AWESOME but the SBI is a slf locking setup, cant beat em i reckon

I jumped in and got some. The 'dude' you were slacking with in KL, not Andy Lewis??

Did ya end up gettin the SBI or RE pulleys?

Why only 18kN line, theres 44kN polyester hey? As i've busted 19kN nylon tubetape i'd hesitate to use that in a highline set-up! Also having a seperate pulleysystem out of 4mm cord and yacht pulleys means you can have a superlight 4:1 to pull on the 5:1 tape system allowing one person to get a line tight enough for a good trick line!

I went with SBI. Now owned by Andy Lewis.

sliamese: the line strength also determines how stiff, heavy and stretchy the line feels underfoot. For short lengths I much prefer lower weight polyester. The kits were designed as a lightweight, easy to use slackline NOT a highline!
And you're right, for a highline I would use something 30kN+ even if it feels a bit stiff.
