One continuous piece on long highlines is dangerous because if the main were to fail, you would fall a long, long way down before the backup caught you. It's also impractical to buy a km long piece of webbing because you will never want to carry it for any projects that are shorter and traveling with it is difficult because it is over the 50lb bag weight limit when you fly.
So after much research, we are presenting you the Slack Inov Split method of connecting 2 highlines together to be the safe, simple, and something we can all do with our webbing regardless if you have a sewing machine and regardless what company you buy your webbing from.
Thank you Cam Peters for filming and rigging with me for over 4 hours for this episode.
Thank you Florent Berthet from Slack Inov for sharing their idea with me. You can buy webbing with loops, soft shackles and extenders from their website
