This video is in response to a video demonstrating that soft shackles reduced the strength of webbing sewn loops too much to be safe on a highline. We did over 10 break tests to demonstrate that they are super good enough. We even broke a 12mm quicklink with a super old 8mm soft shackle.
Thank you Lorenzo DeMuro and Kyle Lovett for helping make this video.

Stephan Chalkowski from Raed Slacklines is a good slackline company and this is a friendly dispute over two schools of thoughts about a unique tool that we use in highlining to make our rigs lighter and in my opinion (mixed with imperical data)... stronger. I appreciate anyone who makes an effort to move us forward in our slack knowledge. Cheers Stephan!
