10 days after our monster-highline in the Churfirsten (537m long) has been taken down by lightning we still had the open project to make a rope-jump into a highline.

A slackline world record on marathon
Some months ago we started developing a new line. The goal was to have a line with:

- rather low stretch, so it's easy to rig on big distances
- 3-layer-construction to have the outer fibres under less tension than the inner ones.
