Slack Snap - Can fiber reinforced tape break your highlines

Fiber reinforced tape is great to tape your main line and backup together on a highline because it won't tear when it is windy or during whippers, but is it so strong that it can break your webbing? We tested fiber tape, duct tape, and climbing tape up to 16 layers thick on our break test machine and filmed it in slow motion.

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.
