Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this at the beginning of the summer having just moved close to a park with a lot of trees and because I tried it once and was terrible at it so wanted to practice on the off chance I happened across a slackline party one day so I didn't embarrass myself.
After months of practice I am happy to report I am still pretty bad at it but I also still think it's very fun. I still can't make it all the way across in one go but I get closer everyday and if I happen across a slack line party now I don't think they'll say "wow, embarrassing" but more of a "with enough slack line party run ins I bet she could make it across in one go!"
Embarrassment concerns aside, this is a great intro line, it is pretty easy to assemble, a good width to learn on, and slack-lining is actually really fun and worth doing even if you never run into a slack line party in your whole life. It packs up pretty easily, not tiny but it can fit in a daypack with some picnic snacks, a blanket, and a few cold boys without too much shoving.
Comes with clear instructions on setup and a Velcro piece to put over the ratchet so you don't pinch yourself or something if you step on it.
I would recommend getting the tree protectors to put between the line and the tree so you don't scrape the bark off and hurt the trees. Fun summertime park hangout activity and a fun gift for outdoor enthusiasts who are hard to shop for! My dog is much worse at it than me but we will get there one day.
