Hello again, its been a long while!
Im looking for some opinion / experience / advice. I have always made my DIY hammocks with a continuous loop of climbing cord which connects the hammock body to the suspension via a ring or karabiner. I have always pushed the pre-tied loop through the sewn end channels before attaching the suspension ...
... but its just occurred to me that the cord could be passed through the channel and then tied ...
... saving half the length and weight of the cord.
What effect will this have on the lay ... will it increase or decrease calf ridges? will it cause over-tautness of the hammock sides?
I will happily test and let people know but have divorce keeping me busy right now so am fishing here for thoughts first.
