Thanks in advance for the forecoming fountain of wisdom....here goes
This is what I am thinking...I have an ENO DN which I am redoing the suspension on. One of the stock biners has already stretched somewhat (yh Im a big feller) and we all know Slapstraps are not good. I have since gone to whoopies and marlinspike set up. I am torn on which way that I want to setup. I have been just hooking my whoopies to the stock biners and using DIY tree straps and MS/toggle. I really want to just thread my whoopies thru the hammock and remove the stock cord. but will my weight be a factor on the hammock material... I have considered threading a climbing biner thru the hammock but I would love to get rid of the bulk of that too.
I have thought that I can completely do away with any biners of dutch clips with this method....
Is there anything wrong with just tying a fig8 loop in one end my tree strap and then just wrapping that roun the tree and feeding the other end thru the strap elimnating the need for any metal except for the toggle for the MS of course? anybody using this method? Pro and Cons?
