The winners are:
Balance Community Titen Series – winner of the Editor's Choice Award for 2011 for slacklines. According to Gear Editor Damian Cooksey, "Balance Community’s Titen Series Custom Pulley System has the quality, durability, versatility and safety we are looking for in a slackline rig. If budget is not an issue and if you want to progress from walking to tricklining and super long slacklines (400 feet or more) – this is the set up for you. Balance Community’s Titen Series Custom Pulley System allows you to create the most versatile, durable, safe-to-dismantle rig available today. This truly is the ultimate slackline rig on the market."

Primitive Rig - winner of the Best Buy award for 2011. This award is given to a product that balances an extremely high score in our tests and a very reasonable price. According to Damian Cooksey, "We couldn’t review slackline kits without including the rig that started it all. The Primitive Rig is just that – primitive. It is the first system created with webbing and a few biners in Yosemite by Jeff Ellington in the early 1980s. It is still the best value in slacklines. The price tag for this rig varies from $0-75 depending on whether you have some old carabiners you’re willing to sacrifice for slacklining. If you are a climber, you can probably find all the components lying around so the line sorta costs $0."
