Who stocks slacklines?
Are there diferent types?

What about an old dynamic rope?
Looks real easy

What you need is to set up a Slackline:
3 biners (1 for attaching the slackline to sling around the tree and 2 for the tension system),
one sling (length depends on tree diameter),
and a Xm piece of webbing (I find the 'Ederid-three strips' works best)

MMO sell slack line kits... but you could also make one with rope/tape (the tape might be a tad easier
If you can get a big ratchet strap, those are good to start with and easy to tighten.
When you fall, know how to land - avoid breaking a wrist or neck (neither are conducive to climbing) and don't slap anything between your legs either

Same topic....different location.
Anyone know where I can buy a slackline in Jhb/Pta?
I heard that safety belt's (the same as in your car) works very well, and it's cheap?

I bought 10m of 25mm webbing from Builders Warehouse for R70, tied one end to a pole and the other to my bakkie. Good fun! My legs are stil wobbly trying to balance my body. It took a couple of tries but I am now managing a few steps. I can imagine it gets harder the longer the line as the amplitude will increase. Cool Bananas!
(Cant wait for slack line purists to criticize my rig!!! He he
