08. What does it change between polyester and nylon Slackline?


Most of the longline webbing are made of polyester: this because it is easier to tension. On the other hand, the nylon lines are much more elastic: at the same tension, nylon stretches up to 50% more than the polyester!

Expert tip

For a better use of a nylon Longline, use them over a land with depressions (basins); the nylon webbing has a greater bounce than polyester. They are good, to practice highlining and waterlining: limit the stress on the anchors and reduce the risk of cuts and abrasions.

 

SLACKLINE

 

“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 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

 

“...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...!”
