Reviewed by Dashirley1 from Texas on Monday, April 14, 2014Yes, the one inch line is slightly looser and harder. But that is expected when you buy a one inch line. It is a challenge compared to the classic line but I love learning to use this line. The set up is simple and you can make it tight as you like. Definitely worth the STP price especially if you have a coupon because it is normally a $100 line. Get this line if you wanna try a one inch line, super fun.
Reviewed by Nash from Nashville on Tuesday, December 31, 2013I own another Gibbon slackline, which I love - the jibline. This Flowline, however, I don't like.
First, as a beginner, it's too thin. At 1in wide, it is harder to traverse than a 1.5 or 2in line. Second, and mainly, the line gives way too much; it's way too flexible. Today, I set up the line between two trees which were about 20yds apart and approximately 18in off of the ground. As I worked my way into the middle of the line, I was bottoming out - hitting the ground. I weigh 185lbs. I am sure that there is a better way to set it up, but I am limited by the trees in my backyard. Stretched at approximately the same height from the ground and the same length between trees, the Jibline doesn't even come close to the ground.
Finally, some say the double ratchet system (the system used by the flowline) makes for easier setup. It doesn't. If you are setting the line up by yourself, you will have to do a lot of walking back and forth. Perhaps with two people it would be easier. But, then again, my Jibline (which operates on the single ratchet system) is also easier to set up with two people. Thus, my vote is that the double ratchet system doesn't make for easier setup.
In the end, if you are a first time buyer/novice slackliner, look past the flowline towards something that is wider and doesn't bend as much.
