Just wanted to say HI and thanks to everyone that has posted their ideas here. I have learned a lot and am waiting on my first real hammock to arrive. I purchased a jungle hammock from "mosquito" or "claytor" hammocks about 13 days ago, so i am expecting it in the next day or two. I went to a store here in town called andy and bax and had made up for me, 2, 11 foot straps with a loop sewn into one side (for caribiner) and 2 "D" rings on the other. I was afraid that the whoopie straps would not hold the weight of myself and my gear when hunting the back country, ( i weigh 250 and my gear is at least another 50+ lbs) so i opted for 1 inch close weave strapping. I'm sure with a load limit of 3200 lbs its total overkill but i wanted to be sure. What are your folks thought on this idea. Do they make the spectra cord in higher weight limits ?????? I really did'nt look because i read that its limits where around 250 lbs. Thanking you all in advance, Charlie.
