I have been hammocking for several years now and have pretty much used the same set up since I started. Let me start off by saying that I am mainly hanging on motorcycle trips and a couple of family outings per year. Given that I am not overly concerned with weight but I am concerned about bulk. I've been using the Jacks R Better self tensioning lines and have them connected to some ground hawg stakes with a figure 9 binder. That being said I would like to get away from carrying all of the figure 9's if possible in order to slim down my gear. I've also been using the figure 9's for tarp ridge lines but I'm going to a whoopie slings dutch set up.....so I'm already reducing the size of my gear.
Just looking for options on what I can do. I'ld like to stay with the JRB self tensioning lines but where it meets the stake I was hoping for some suggestions. Pics would also be great if possible. I can't hardly tie my shoes let alone some of the knots that you guys come up with.
