Kickstarter: Pure Slacklines

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: http://www.slacklinebrothers.com/

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

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!

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.
