05. I saw the 25-mm webbing: is there a big difference of between the 25-mm Slackline and the 50-mm one?


Yes, the 25-mm (1 inch) Slackline is more challenging than the 50-mm (2 inches) one.

The first provides a greater contact surface, therefore it’s more suitable for a beginner. For long distances (more than 30 m), however, only the 25-mm lines are suitable for walking. This narrow webbing allows you to have a greater sensitivity. In fact, thanks to the reduced thickness (just 1 inch) the foot comes out slightly from the edges of the line, and force you to position better on it.

Expert tip

Before ordering the webbing, it’s necessary to consider the use and the need. A beginner who does not walk long distances, would walk better on a 50-mm (2 inches) line. On the contrary, the 25-mm (1 inch) line will be more suitable for an expert longliner.

 

Slackline

The expert’s answer...

 

“To engage in the art of balance, you’ll need determination and a flexible and elastic length of webbing, between 2.5 and 5cm wide, stretched between two anchor points (eg. two trees, but it could be anywhere). In addition to walking, you can also do jumps and tricks on the Slackline, depending on what speciality you choose between Tricklining, Longlining and Highlining”.

Longline

The expert’s answer...

 

“... the Longline is not just a length of webbing over 30 metres long, it’s a journey: tell the truth, you never thought that a line just 2.5cm wide would be enough! This long line has no real limits, only the ones you set yourself. To learn, you’ll require particular skills and concentration: your line can be taut or slack, depending on the level of difficulty and the type of activity you want to perform. Your long webbing will take you far... the current record is only 1,020m! Think you can do better?”

Highline

The expert’s answer...

 

“...Highline is height, excitement, adrenaline and vertigo...! Highlining is the most extreme expression of slacklining around, practised with a particular kind of webbing installed very high up: between 7 and 1000m. How can you learn to walk suspended in the void, on top of the world, at a height that would be fatal if you fell without a safety line? It’s definitely an activity for experts, and certainly not for the faint of heart...!”
