I am a complete newbie to hammocking. Am buying some Amsteel to make a whoopie sling.
I just wanted to ask - is it necessary to make the fixed eye loop/locked brummel at one end of the whoopie sling to attach it to the hammock (specifically, a Hennessy Hammock)? Could I just tie that end of the Amsteel directly to the hammock using the same knot/method that Hennessy uses to tie the standard rope that comes with the hammock (ie. is this same know secure for Amsteel)? Any particular advantages of having the fixed loop instead of just tying directly to the hammock?
Thanks in advance.
