Space net at GGBY 2018 had 10:1 safety ratio and 4x redundancy

Check out how we rigged the spacenet at GGBY 2018. We had 4kn on the line most of the time and the spider silk breaks at 42kn in all my slacksnap tests and we had 4 layers of it. It wasn't perfect but it was super safe enough! Getting 2 lines to hold the tension didn't work out but with the slackline above (the jelly line) holding the corners up, it reduced the force by half.

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.
