What is the weight?
“I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt.” - Cormac McCarthy
they are almost the same weight as the regular cinch buckle (they are a gram or so lighter), but i'm working on a custom buckle that will be very similar but hopefully about as light as a set of tri-rings
just curiuos why the change??
i do not remember the question, however i believe beer is the answer
i've run into trouble getting more of the welded triangles
the nes ones are nice because most folks don't need to tie the backup knot. i've never heard a report of a cinch buckle slipping, and i personally had me and my wife in a traveler hammock bounceing up and down and couldn't get these to slip.
I would be very interested to upgrade to these on my BB. In my opinion the backup knot really detracts from the ease of use for the webbing suspension approach. My triangles always slip a lot without it, and the slippery half hitch needs to be pulled tightly against the triangle buckle to be effective. What's the point of carrying that extra weight if you have to un-do a knot and then re-tie one every time you make an adjustment? The slipped buntline knot on the line/strap option is not really that much more difficult to tie.
i think all of the BB's sold in the past should get these new buckles as a free upgrade.
you have my address, i'll be watching the mailbox.
