The most expensive thing you will do slacklining/highlining is buy gear twice. In a perfect world you would buy gear that you can use for both slacklining and highlining. I present an option for an entire setup that would cost less than $1000 and you can do everything with and be able to add to it, rather than outgrow it.
This series is aimed for those who want to slackline AND highline and currently have no gear. My gear wall is not my success, it is my failure. No one needs that much shit! No one sponsors me and I don't sell gear, so I am as gear neutral as one can be (other than I have my personal favorites).
This video is the 2nd of the 3 in this series. We focus on how to use the gear just as a slackline in the park. The first video is in my studio explaining all the gear options and the third video is showing a highline example with this same gear.
Remember, the cheapest way to slackline is to make friends in “high” places, people that already have the gear and know how to use it. Make a serious effort to find slackers or go to a slackline festival before purchasing anything.
See Cameron Studley tension with the Snatch, a cheaper option if the LineGrip is too expensive for you.
Another linegrip alternative is the WoodGrip sold by
