First Look Gear Review
Street Price: $300-700
Pros: Most versatile slackline (20-1,000' length), easy to tension, safe to detension.
Cons: Expensive and bulky.
Best Uses: Walking, surfing, tricklining, longlining (know your gear, seek expert advise), highlining (know your gear, seek expert advise)
For serious slackline enthusiasts out there with a big budget, the Balance Community’s Titen Series Custom Pulley System has the quality, durability, versatility, and safety we are looking for in a slackline rig and will provide you with everything you need to push yourself to the limit and walk longer, higher lines for years to come.
That said, the version we tested cost over $700, which most people will find a bit expensive. Even our budget version (less expensive pulleys and using our own GriGri) cost over $300. If you are serious about slacklining, this is worth it. If you are just starting out, we recommend the Gibbon Classic, which is easy to walk, easy to set up and a mere $75. If you want a simple and affordable trickline, get the Gibbon Surfline.
Balance Community products are only available online directly from them at balancecommunity.com. For slacklines which are more widely available consider any of the Gibbon kits mentioned above or our Editor's Choice winner the Gibbon Tubeline which is a great all purpose rig.
Check out our complete Slackline review to see how various slackline kits sold in stores compare.
