The Gibbon Classic Slackline is an original! Thicker webbing and two lengths make this the best line for any location or skill level. It can even be used as a portable rail for skis, snowboards and skateboards!

I have tried multiple different slacklines (flowline, surfline, classic, among others). as far as quality goes, the surfline can not be beat, but if you are on a budget, or just want to try it out before you consider a more expensive one, then this is a great choice. Very little signs of wear after three years of having this one. And with the distance, you cant go wrong. While not the longest, it is sufficient for most distances that one will have to go over. Highly recommend.
I bought the yellow 42 footer. Not as great as my longer line (the yellow 82 footer I bought last year), but it certainly does the trick. Good for short lines. Much quicker to set up and take down since you don't have as much to roll and unroll. As long as proper care is taken (always use tree protection), the line shouldn't fray. Word of advice: slackline with the print on bottom so it doesn't fade as quickly.
I love this slackline. Super easy to set up and take down. I discovered that when releasing the tension, that area of the slackline gets worn pretty easily. Has some stretch in it. I mainly just use it for balancing and walking though, as that is hard enough for me. It is a great way to get outdoors, relax, have some fun, and work on balance. Get one for many great times.
Dead easy to use, and pretty soon you'll get the hang of slackin around. Great fun to take to a park and just muck about on, passer buys will be entertained and sometimes they'll even ask to have a go! Great way to make new friends. I've also used it with one of my outdoor recreation classes and they thought it was rad!
The convenience of a gibbon slackline makes it my go to line. I personally prefer 1" webbing, but having the ability to easily set this up by my self far outweighs that preference. This beast has help up to two years of abuse, and my bringing it traveling all over with me. Looks like it has plenty of life left to give too!
I'm awful but it is fun, it's a pretty easy set up and take down. I figure it's going to get dirty but to prevent fraying I do highly recommend the tree protection, or just using a towel or something. no reason you shouldn't be happy with your purchase, ours hasn't seen any kinda fraying after about 2 years.
This thing is fun! I'm still pretty bad, but that's another story. The classic slackline is simple and easy to set up. My problem was that I only had one sturdy tree to use, but I found some great ideas at the site below on how to set up if you're lacking tree options like me:
I decided to buy this slackline as my first slackline ever. Have been very impressed. It was very easy for me to setup and adjust. Its pretty stretchy, and has held up well since I have had it. Plan on putting a bunch of wear on this one!
I used my friends Gibbon slackline to crank a vehicle away from mine on a steep muddy road. Also used it as a pull strap to pull it up the hill. Very cool and functional for a car camping trip.
This is my first slackline and I'm very happy with this line. Its very easy to setup and very addicting! If you're a first timer I'd suggest watching some of the Gibbon videos on youtube, they really helped.
I got this slackline about 4 months ago, and its the best buy I'v made this year. Its a lot of fun and a great exercise all in one. I would even go to say that it is rather addicting as soon as you start. With that being said, if you're going to set it up on trees, the trees will need a layer of protection. I have noticed that the line is fraying in two spots. This is however a beginner slackline and I'm am decently pleased with it so far.
