So as I slowly sat down into my 11 oz Hennessy clone yesterday to figure out the tie outs on my underquilt, I heard and felt a "pop pop pop" noise by my head. Expecting to see shredded 1.1 oz nylon, I discovered that somehow the whipping on the head end of my hammock had failed. About 20 inches of folded material was dangling in the slight breeze.

15 minutes later I had refolded and re whipped (more securely now I hope), but suffice it to say I now get why Hennessy punches a hole through the material with a hot nail.... but I still didn't do it myself.

I am curious if anybody else has had this happen to them. Cheers,
