    I find it to be quite therapeutic for the knees and ankles. It also helps the core a bit. Also, its just plain fun.

    You are talking about a (not) tight rope, right?

    Basically yes. It is 1 inch tubular webbing stretched out at about the tension of a Trampoline.

    Its braided rope without a core. We would refer to it as a sleeve when braiding it. I checked out slack lining on line and found that many of the photos and videos were of people slack lining in Climbing Gyms.
    Are you doing this at a rock gym or at home? I work for a premium cordage manufacture that is in the climbing rope market and see this an oppurtunity.

    Yeah, I've seen people doing this all over, I think it's catching on. I went to Red River Gorge (kentucky), and next to the pizza place around the corner were a few people doing it. Definitely popular with the outdoorsy folk.

    I climb as well as slack line, however I generally slack line at home while BBQing.
