I've been using basically the same setup for about 2 months now(2 months of trail/sleep time) with no signs of wear.... No visible wear on neither soft shackle or webbing....

To much time on your hands? Waste some time here
Well its held up fine so far and its made my setting up easier. I used to just pull the webbing through the loop I had sewn on but it wouldnt cinch up very tight so it would fall with a slight breeze before I could hang both ends of the hammock.

You have, in effect, a choker hitch there, which greatly reduces the working load limit of the whole, and puts a lot of stress on the wedding/rope interface, making damage at that point more likely. Ease up on that acute angle, if possible.
