Making anchor slings

Have you seen me mentioning making slings with your own webbing by tying a “water knot?”  Confused as to what the heck a water knot is, or how to use it to make a sling?  Well, here’s a video that shows you how to do just that.

    I love the video, and the site, SO HELPFUL! I am looking into making a primitive slackline. You suggest buying, about half the length, of 1” tubular webbing to use as my slings. It doesn’t degrade the webbing at all cutting the 25′ in half (say into two 12′ pieces). And then rigging those into my slings. I guess my question is, would it be cheaper or better (stronger) to just buy 12′ of tubular webbing, well twice. Does this make sense? Instead of cutting the 25′ in half lets say.

    EDIT: Whether you cut it, or the shop you buy it from cuts it, doesn’t matter. The like will just be cut to whatever length you need. They have a rope cutter at most shops, so the cut will be a little cleaner, but that is the only difference, really. If you need any clarification, just let me know.
