You won't believe how much FORCE a slackline space net PERIMETER sees when highlining

We built 3 different shapes of spacenets and put dynamometers on the legs, perimeter and inside weave to see where all the forces are. You can find the chart of all this data at


Thank you Andy Lewis @sketchyandylewis for lending your dynamometers for science.

Thank you Cheyne Mott (@acromott) for filming and TJ Gillick (@sagelysight) and Michael Melner (@meladapted) for building and disassembling these nets with me all afternoon. And thank you @Nateil_evans for joining in for a bit.

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.
