The team from Slack.fr had a deep weekend apparently ! A new world record, 426 polyester longline, broken by 3 slackliners : Théo Sanson, Antony Newton and Nathan Paulin. Impressive !
The dyneema record will be for next time, as the webbing broke, oops !
No record for the girls but they fight hard, it will be next time for sure !
More info there (english at the end) :
Slack.fr is now offering metal pole for indoor gymnasium that fit into handball poles holes ! The system is solid since it works like expansion bolts. It’s perfect for slackline associations. It’s 200€ a piece.
It was released just a few weeks ago and we did not had a chance to talk about it. The new polyester webbing for jumpline made by Slack.fr. It’s 4cm wide and fatter than the previous Jumpproseries webbing. It’s more heavy and has more stretch : 8% at 10Kn. Breaking strength is 45Kn, so there is nothing to worry about, for jumpers who likes to get tension in the line to go high.
Florent Founau, the proslack.fr athlete said that it’s really soft and comfortable. The edges are not sharps and the design are sweet. It’s not easy to rig, to get the right pieces of gear : pulleys
It’s here :
We talked about it and now it’s available on slack.fr
Weight : 73gr/m
Stretch 7% for 10Kn
As Guillaume mentionned it’s similar to the Core from landcruising !
There is nothing else to say, so go get it !!
Tomorrow Slack.fr is releasing their new webbing called the MILF (Made in la France).

Check also Nathan’s blog to read his post regarding the slack festival in Turkey where 300 people made it there !
Nathan Paulin is a hell of a nice guy and one of the top pro slackliner in the game ! His performance are unreal : 170m exposed highline and 600+m longline. Yes he is a slack mutant ! You can follow his performance on his website : http://nathanpaulin.com/
If you meet him, go talk to him since he is a really cool person. What’s next for Nathan ? Well, it depends how many meters of webbing he will get from his sponsor since his limits are not his own human abilities but the length of the webbing he gets to slack.

Last word :
Long life to the sag!
Slack.fr is about to release a new webbing called the MILF (Made in La France).
It’s a polyester green and blue rather heavy as it’s similar to the Core made by Landcruising.
Nathan Paulin brought it to the festival in Turkey and Guillaume who had a chance to test it, gave us his first impressions.
The webbing is soft on the feet and smooth to walk. It’s not sharp and has low stretch.
Walking on the webbing is smooth and confortable if you stay relax.
This webbing is highly recommendable if you are looking for a challenging line that stays safe and confortable. It’s perfect for longline and a true challenge for highline.
