Thanks for the ideas. I just switched out suspension on my DIY hammock and my WBBB to use a similar set-up. I used 1/4" clear vinyl tubing to sleeve the 7/64 amsteel where the whoopie slings loop through the eye of the webbing.

I use a soft shackle (like Opie shows in his thread) made from 7/64 amsteel in lieu of the dutch clip. For my soft shackles I add a small loop of Zing It in the closed loop to help me open the closed end when its tightened.
