I got a lorry strap and ratchet. About 50p a metre, think from theratchetshop.com
Someone will be along to say that it isn't expensive so must be highly dangerous - so at your own risk and all that. FWIW mine's been fine for years and you're going to be falling off the thing anyway!

do the lorry thing... the ones you list here are all too narrow. The lorry ones are 50mm wide as is normal for every slack line I have ever seen.

I bought mine in Decathalon for about 30 about 3 years ago and it just fine... works out about 1 per m including the ratchet and a bag to store it in.

Im very good at falling off it!

You could get imaginative... search youtube, there are slacklining video bloggers out there who are doing all sorts of interesting things using GriGris to tension them.

Thanks both - will have another search.

I'm shit at slacklining, but narrow doesn't seem any more difficult, just different...

1 inch (25mm) lines are pretty common, I think most high- and long-lines are 25mm.

If you use a grigri to tension make sure the grigri is isolated from the system before you start walking the line.
