Whoopies, rings and continuous loops
Help me out here guys ...
I want to shorten the minimum distance from my hammock to my whoopie loop, my current setup is ...
- Amsteel continuous loop - 11"
- Ally ring - 2"
- Dynaglide Whoopies - 12" to adjustable loop
That's a good two feet of dead gear at each end I suppose, but I need the drip rings for the UK weather.
Sometimes when the trees are tight I'm struggling to get the right tension on my BB and I end up with the calf ridge thing by the footbox.
I have an idea so wanted to run it by you, both the whoopies and continuous loops are larksheaded on to my rings with a single wrap, if I was to keep adding wraps and thereby shortening both cords, would that have any affect on the strength of either?
In other words, can I wrap my 11" loop around the ring five or six times and almost halving the length?
