    Hennessy Rope --> Continuous Loops?

    I bought two 15" CLs from Dutch in 7/64" amsteel, in different colors: red for head, blue for shoe.

    I kept the original spectra lines, though I don't know what I'm going to do with them yet.

    This is really close to what I ended up doing. I set the HH up with the tarp attached directly to the ropes and pulled taught. I than marked the spot where the tarp prussic ended up. I then took everything down and tied a bowline for a permanent loop just past the spot that I had marked. Carabiner in loop, connect to Atlas straps and good to go.

    I think it gives me the best of both worlds for now. Can still directly attach the tarp, can connect directly to straps, and was still able to cut off about 3 of heavy-ish rope on each end.

    I have installed whoopie slings to Hennessy Hammock and am very happy with them. The Hennessy ropes are a pain. Did not use whoopies with continuous loops. Just installed directly on hammock. If you want just a loop to use with a carabiner, you could buy continuous loops as the other man suggested. I don't think the rope from the Hennessy would be easy to make into a reliable loop.

    I converted mine to CL so I can use the same straps as the rest of my hammocks. I like it a lot better and it seems to hang better and more comfortable

    I had a problem with my factory suspension on the HH. I got in it after it had rained and I sagged to the ground. I replaced them with whoopie slings (many thanks to Dutch for his help on this), and I never had an issue since.

    There is a YouTube video on how to replace the HH suspension lines.
