How much force do 10 slackliners put on a slackline?

Normal highline situations generally have a healthy safety ratio but when we start doing projects where there are a bunch of people on one system, it can get risky if not properly rigged. The Ticket to the Moon project with hammocks in Bismantova Italy inspired this video and you can watch that at The set up had an MBS of 120kn and they put a max force of 30kn with 18 highliners all on a single system. Watch what happens to the dynomometer every time we add a slackliner on this single system.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
