I appreciate you deciphering the fine print and pointing out the real world weight differences, thank you warbonnetguy. WBBB single layer to the top of the heap assuming the WB suspension line ( low stretch single braid dyneem) is not a feather in comparison to the HH suspension line.

An issue I see confounding my idea is that of easily releasable knots that will not slip on the small diameter Amsteel and Dyna Glide cord. So if I wanted to tie a simple, easily releasable knot with Amsteel and Dyna Glide would my traditional Slipped Clove hitch work with this diameter cord? If not, what knot would you recommend?
If a knot won't work on these small diameter options then i will take a harder look at the Whoopies and UCR systems.
I'm a noob to hanging, but have some knot skills from sailing, rafting and camping. My favorite quick release knot has been a bowline on a bight. Is there a problem with this knot being used on the very small diameter lines discussed here?
slipped buntline hitch. When you put it on the biner realy push it against the binner. The slipped end makes it east to pull apart and its pretty solid. Warbonnetguy uses it in his demo of setting up a BB.
Don't let life get in the way of living.
Warbonnetguy and Odds - Thank you for the clarification on what knots should function with the small diameter Amsteel.
My new suspension shall just be some Amsteel on each end of the hammock end and tied to something like a Dutch Biner to the tree strap. Now off to see how much weight and space I can save using Amsteel instead of the 1" flat webbing for the tree straps. I will be using trail sticks to protect the tree bark.
