what kind of carabiners should i use to rig a slack line?
i see many different shaped carabiners and dont know which is the strongest or most ideal for rigging.
also which riging system requires the least amount of people?

most people use ovals for the symmetry. i have a 3:1 primitive system and i can always get my 35'-ish line tight enough alone.

Aluminum ovals are fine. Unless you're planning on rigging 50ft< lines or highlines. Then you want steel lockers. Just remember not to cross your climbing gear with slackline gear.
