Ok so im trying to work out all the kinks in my suspension system, and I could use some expert advice from some of the nice folks on here.

I'm pretty much using the dutch setup with tree straps connected to whoopies connected to biners (instead of whoopie hooks, just because I haven't bought them yet) connected to my hammock.

So my question is this: is there some kind of knot or something I could use to tie the whoopies to the tree strap? I've been trying to make the distance between my hammock and the tree as small as possible, and I think using some kind of knot instead of a fixed eye could cut out a few more inches for me.

Also if there are any other tips or tricks anyone uses to cut down the amount of space between their hammock and the tree (when using whoopies) it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance guys!
