About Slacklining
Originating in the climbing world, slacklining is the act of balancing along a narrow, flexible piece of webbing that has been anchored between two stable objects--such as trees. Slacklines are usually set up low to the ground, making it possible for people of all ability levels to practice on them. Unlike tightropes and balance beams, slacklines offer a certain amount of give in the line that allows you to bounce and do tricks as you traverse. Using a slackline for balance practice can improve core strength, help you develop focus, and refine your movements for any athletic pursuit, from climbing to gymnastics and beyond. Lightweight and easy to set up virtually anywhere, such as on sturdy trees or other stationary anchors, slacklining is a great way to challenge yourself and pass the time--whether you're an avid climber, a yogi, or a family looking for a fun challenge to do together.

I got this slackline after owning a gibbon classic for a few months and wanting to try other lines. I have to say that this line has helped me improve a lot, as it is pretty versatile. It has a much more dynamic feel to it, which can make it both harder and a lot more fun. It is really amazing for bouncing tricks if it has the right tension. Here are some of the good and the bad:

Pros:
-very dynamic and responsive, thinner material that is lighter for a given length
-it can be set up a number of ways - A shorter more highly tensioned line is great for bouncing and jumping around as well as just walking. If you set it up longer (60-90 feet) it can be set up fairly loose to try surfing and really master your control with poses.
-The ratchet handle is longer than most, allowing you more leverage

Cons:
-while the ratchet lever is long, the high stretch of the webbing makes it difficult to get the line tight enough to jump on anything much longer than 50 feet (at least for me).
-the ratchet itself is also prone to fraying the line over time as you de-tension it and the webbing whips around. I fixed this to a degree by taking a dremel and smoothing out the sharp edges where the line touches it, now it doesn't fray much or at all.
-ratchet also is tensioned by pulling towards the anchor, which can make it awkward to tension if its really close to the tree/anchor.
-your probably gonna hurt yourself trying to do some crazy jump at some point

Despite the issues with it I am very happy with the slackline in general - it can be set up very quickly and is a breeze to take down/adjust, and the long length (for a 2" line) allows you to do a lot more with it than a typical shorter line.

I trickline with a team in Japan and own 7 different brands of trickline.
And Gibbon is the WORST!

The ratchet would not detension once, due to defective cutting of the metal pieces at their Chinese factory.
I emailed Gibbon USA with videos to demonstrate the defective ratchet.
And Frankie Najera replied;
"I checked out your video and I opened up 10 surf ratchets just double check that your ratchet is indeed a manufacturing defect. Your ratchet definitely is definitely defective in the part that pushes the the metal plate on the spring open is cut incorrectly so it doesn't push it open. I am looking into the best way to get a new ratchet out to you so hang tight. I will let you know as soon as we get it on the way to you."

That was 6 months ago. They never sent it to me.
I emailed again..... No reply.
And emailed him more times, requesting that he send the ratchet as promised.

Now after "talking to our higher ups" Frankie said they won't send it to me because I live in Japan.

Well, they had no problem selling to me from America to Japan on three different orders (Jibline, Surfline, and chain hoist). But NO NO! They aren't allowed to send anything to Japan.

What a fu#%ing load of crap!

Even after confirming that they sold me manufacturing defective materials. They won't replace it. Even after promising to replace it earlier and making me wait over 7 months from the time of purchase.

The product is unusable. Thier Chinese manufacturers are terrible.
And thier policy on how to please customers who they have screwed, is bad enough to make me post my story here.

If you want a good slackline, buy an Elephant slackline or a Gambit slackline. They actually like their customers.

I recently bought a slackline "The Surfer/Surfline 30m". I first used the band on 31 August, when I noticed that the ratchet was kind of loose. On the 5th time I was using the slackline, the security lock opened and seriously damaged the band.

I was extremelly disappointed because I trusted Gibbons Slacklines were the best in the market and I have other bands that are supposedly of less quality and that are far more resistant.

This is a well made slackline and it is very long. I would possibly recommend getting a beginner slackline if you have never tried this before. The line has a lot of bounce in it but if you are patient with yourself you will get the hang of it. Try using a long 4 inch pvc pipe or other smooth walking stick to help you when you are just learning to balance on the line.

Note - I did put some minor rips in the fabric of the slackline since at first it takes some practice in releasing the tremendous about of tension in the line properly. Follow the instructions and watch the Youtube videos to help you out. Also try and put a small piece of plastic or cloth between the main line that has tension in it and where you release the long handle. This will help take some of the brute force of the line when you disengage the handle since it will happen suddenly.

The customer service at Gibbon can be improved. I contacted them about my above concerns with the ripping and I have not gotten any response back from them and that is why I gave this great product 4 stars instead of 5.
