I searched to see if this one had been discussed but didn't find anything.
I just set up my first line using this. Tried to use it for about twenty minutes then weather made me take it down.
Any glaring flaws here?
I used lockers instead, and wrapped them with a towel because I'm paranoid about flying metal.

I would use a line locker for the fixed end instead of the munther mule. Other than that it looks fine for a short line.

Cool.
I would say the one I set up is about 35'

How about the multidirectional loading on the anchor biners? I know enough to extend it to keep the angle under 120. I was thinking about using a girth hitch on the anchor webbing to eliminate the multidirection pull. Is that a no no?

I just searched girth hitches on slacklines.
Seems to be no good. Guess I'll stay away from using it.

5 biners is overkill. just tie a bolin using one end of the line to one anchor. just use 2 biners. one on the line. one on the anchor. make a 4:1 pully, but wrap the webbing on the inside of another. this way it locks itself into place.
