I too like this idea. However, do you feel you lose some of the freedom to fine tune length adjustments? I'm thinking with the set you have described here, the only adjustment one can make is with the whoopie sling alone. But when you attach the whoopie to the hammock with no continuous loop, you have both the MSH and the adjustability of the whoopie. I hope I'm making sense, just interested in what others have experienced.
Thanks to everyone for their valuable input.
No reason you can't do that method with a MSH instead of lark's heading onto the tree strap, provided the fixed eye is big enough.
