Well I received my HH Explorer Ultralite in the mail yesterday so I set it up today. I found the carabiner,rings method was a disaster for the 1/8Ē diameter paracord. It cut into the outer layer. I guess my 220 lbs. was a over kill for using the rings. I ended up just going with the HH figure eight method of tying. Itís really not so bad to tie ones you get the knots down. Iím using the carabiner and rings for my hex tarp ridgeline. So far it looks good. I hung out and took a nap for awhile and all is still standing. I see there is no better experience than doing it and learning. But Iím glad I had all your forum threads to read beforehand. I was warned about the chance of the rings cutting into the paracord. Live and learn!
Happy Forth Of July!
