Hi all,

First time poster.

My current Hammock set-up is a DD Frontline suspended using the DD black tape but with crabs at the end of the hammock to both act as a drip brake and allow quick adjustment.


I am about to convert over to Whoopie slings. Set up will be:
Tree Hugger -> Marlin Spike Hitch -> Whoopie sling -> Double Sheet bend -> hammock.

My question is: Does the tail of the Whoopie sling act like a drip line, diverting the drips away from the hammock or do I need to introduce a ring / crab / drip line into this system to avoid getting wet. (I live in a very wet part of the world.)
