Compared to other models:
- If you are searching for something for your kids to play with, get the Play Line.
- If your kids would like to delve deeper into slacklining later, or if your entire family would enjoy walking the line, get the Baseline.
- The Slackers Classic Set can be a nice compromise.
- And the Macaco is a cheaper alternative to the Baseline.
An ideal slackline for kids should be less stretchy (so easier to control and learn on), safe and easy to set up. Based on these requirements we would recommend you these lines – all of them are 2 inch wide (so comfortable to walk even for small children) and offer the popular 2-part setup system. Safety features include durable material and ratchet with a safety lock.
|Baseline||2"||50ft (15m) or 85ft (25m)||$49.99|
|Macaco slackline||2"||52ft (16m) or 85ft (25m)||$37.95 / $52.95|
The Slackline Industries Play Line is definitely better suited for kids as it has been created specifically for them. The webbing is less bouncy and therefore easier to walk on, plus it’s covered with rubber prints for even better contact. And a teaching line is included in the package.
On the other hand, the Slackline Industries Baseline is much more universal – after learning the basics, your kids can proceed to more advanced stuff and even tricks as they grow up.
The Slackers Classic Set can be thought of as a compromise – you’ll get a teaching line as well, but the line is more suitable for advanced slackliners than the Play Line.
And Macaco is another more universal slackline, similar to the Baseline. Slightly cheaper but also with a few minor disadvantages.
