I'm sorry, Tee... you were specific about compression only, and I forgot all about that. I should have left Dave's comment where I found it! I also posted before I completed my thought, said it wrong, and got all screwed up. I'm going to bed now!
Before I go, here is what I was going to say... since I don't trust sticks from the ground, and since the MSH falls apart without the toggle or spike, I thought it might be a good alternative to use a sheet bend tied in the bight, with a toggle. I have tried to show some folks how to tie a MSH, and their eye glazed over.
So, now you know that you can't dump my hammock on the ground with me in it by yanking out the toggle!
