Hangover 2

hangover-s hangover2-0

The Hangover 2 by Slacktivity is out.

We were expecting new features, but there is not real change. The Hangover 2 is like the 1. The efficency is slightly better but it’s hard to feel any difference unless you use line like Kill Bill or Diablo.  It’s a little expensiver than the first version because it has an official label. This doesn’t do anything for the users. Getting a label costs a little more, so this is the reason why it’s more expensive. We do not recommend to buy a new Hangover 2 if you already own the first.

However the version 2 can comes with a screw. This is an extra safety for those who are worried about safety. But it’s not only that. Here is what Samuel had to say :

“Hooking into the line while falling happens from time to time when you have the hangover clipped in to the front. Happened to me 2 or 3 times already. In future when using at shows, then I will take a screw-version. Clipping into the line is potentially dangerous when you have the hangover clipped to the side of the harness as shock-load can occur on your body. This was the main reason for us to produce a screw-version.

Screw-version does not fit through a linegrip. That is one of the reasons why we developed the soft-rigging-plate.http://www.slacktivity.ch/slackline-shop/zubehoer/riggingplate so you can connect 2 hangovers with the linegrip without having the size problem”

The price is outrageous : 49,95€ for a carabiner !

Nevertheless it’s the best webbing pulley in the market so far : easy to clip, easy to use on the tyrolien, easy to use when you work on the tension… So if you don’t have any, you should get one.

New Soft rig plate Slacktivity

The latest Slacktivity product is out : the Soft Rig Plate.

soft rig plate


it’s a soft rigging plate. It’s a new concept since it was only in metal before.

The best part : it’s light -> 42 grammes . It also fits easily in any bag. If you like light product, this one is for you. To get an idea, the closest product in the market is the Petzl PAW S which weight  55 grammes. There isn’t a big gap between them, but when you save weight on each of your belongings that you carry, then it can make a 1kg different. It’s worth it when you carry you pack in the mountain or in the plane.

It’s also really cheap compared to an alu plate : only 14,95 € . The PAW petzl costs 20€. This means it’s only 0,35 cents per gramme : soft or alu are worth the same.

The weakness is the strentgth : only 6Kn WLL. Usuallyalu plate between 36Kn and 45 KN WLL. It’s a big gap. The other question is how long this product can be used. Since it’s soft you will damage it faster than a metal connector. In the other hand if you drop it on a rock, it won’t be broken such as an alu connector.

This Soft rig plate from Slackivity is awesome for those who like light product and not too much tension. An excellent idea from the R&D Slacktivity team !

New linegrip alu

Here it is ! Eventually, slack.fr sell their own line-grip ! Moreover, it’s in aluminium, so very light. This tool, if you don’t know it yet, is used in order to remove the tensioning system of the line, by « holding » it. Like a prussik would do on a rope, but keeping the webbing flat so that it does not get damaged. Also useful in highlining, helps you to stay light, going with only this tool and a highslide to tension. Nice colors ! On the website page you can find a video that explains how to use it
And, moreover, slacktivity produce now the same available in Switzerland and soon worldwide :

new Ropelock Landcruising

Landcruising has a full R&D department to push inovation. Their last inovation is a ropelock that copies the weblock system. It’s for rope. The system is an auto lock like the reverso.

The ropelock doesn’t seem more compact or lighter than a grigri. However the breaking strength is certainly higher. The worst enemy for a rope is rubbing: rubbing melt down the rope. This is hard to tell now if the ropelock avoid that particular issue.

The design is really nice. Landcruising signature style: tunning.

Let’s test it.
