    If you run in to a situation like you describe with a large tree and have 'some' of the Amsteel against the tree, you can place some sticks vertically between the tree and Amsteel as a buffer.

    It is absolutely fine to splice both ends. This is how most of us make our hammock Ridgeline. Basically a long dog bone.

    I'll answer your other question about the continuous loops. Yes, you can just splice them through the channel. Some people think it helps lessen calf ridge. I can't tell a difference.

    Backpacking suspension help

    2.2 Kevlar Becket hitched to your CLs will work. MSH requires a toggle, unless you meant a JBend (modified MSH).
    JBend is easier to release from 2.2 Kevlar than Becket hitch.

    See my edit to previous post. I think 1/16" would be just fine with the extra run through the hole. Check out the third picture
