Hello! <br>I was going to learn a bit but youtube says video is deleted by user. Could you update article with correct video link?
Very nice Instructable, I just wanted to add because it was not said, First off the rope you use should be static otherwise you are going to get a lot of unwanted bounce. Second you should always use tree protectors. Other than that very good!<br>You've got my vote!
That's very true, thanks for the vote!
One other this just because I'm curious how do you braid your slings like that?
its called a water knot which is normally used for webbing its essentially just a over hand knot on one end then u take the other end and thread it through the knot there are plenty of videos on how to tie slings on you tube check out a guy named adamburtle he has alot of videos on how to do the basics of slack lining :) hope i helped
They're asking about how it was braided to be racked. It's just daisy chained webbing.
thanks for sharing!
