If that webbing is stretched tight, why is it called "slack"lining?

The webbing might look fairly tight, but nylon webbing stretches a LOT. Once you get on it, it drops a good deal. Just because a line looks tight it might drop six feet in the middle.

The big difference between tight roping and slacklining is that slacklines give, bounce and sway a lot - thats all due to nylons stretchiness.
