/ Slacklining Movable Ground Anchors
For obvious reasons i wont always have appropriate trees to use as anchors so was just wondering if people had used the screw-in ground anchors and A frames, if so how effective they have been and also somewhere to buy them at a reasonable price. (as i don't have the money in my delivery budget to buy two @ £50+ each...)
at the moment i have a gibbon classic 25m and would just like some feedback on the anchors?
I should really be recommending that you visit our shop and buy some from us... But since you've mentioned you're on a budget, check out somewhere like Machine Mart for ground anchors. I've seen that they have a similar thing pretty cheap. You'd have to check what they were rated to, but the concept is pretty much the same.
Make sure you have a steel bar about 1m long to place/remove them.
Not sure about A-frames though, I think it would be possible to make some similar to the ones from Slackline Tools.
Hope this helps!
Will have a look at your shop bud, was planning on making my own A-frames.

but they are no good in our garden,we're on clay with rock about 6" underneath so I can't get them in deep enough.
Used elsewhere OK but hard work to turn in and remove.
These are the Slackline Tools ones I've used these before: https://www.slackline-tools.com/products/height-adjustment-stands/details/produkte/boecke/backPID/ho...
And the design seems solid and they'd be simple to make.
