    Sorry I'm a bit late to the party on this one. I just bought a Hennessy Explorer Deluxe Zip brand new from REI late Feb of this year( so less than a month ago). It has the new sewn-in webbing end. I...

    Forgot to mention I have webbing suspension already that I can use so there would be no cost of suspension unless I just wanted to try a whoopie sling setup.

    I doubt I would be able to use my bug sock in this fashion though as it uses a drawstring closure on one side so stuff thrown into it might cause it to open, plus I made it from tulle so it's pretty...

    Yeah I'm not keen on the ENO bugnet due to the vertical zipper. Plus it is very heavy for a bugnet. If I were to go with the ENO hammock and buy a bugnet instead of using the sock I already have it...

    Grand trunk SBP vs ENO DN

    Okay I posted this in the ENO section as well but I figured I would post here as well to get as much exposure as possible.

    ENO DN vs grand trunk SBP

    So I'm stuck in a quandary folks. I'm about to get a new hammock in the next couple weeks here for my birthday(hopefully lol) and I'm going back and forth between the ENO DN and the GTSBP. I know...

    I think I got it. Set the hang angle, stake down the tarp, then tighten it on the ridgeline. I've just read a lot of things about the hex tarps being too big to attach directly to the suspension...

    Anyone tried this with a hex fly or same length(12ft) tarp attached directly to the hammock suspension to see if it solves the sagging issues? Just wondering as I will most likely be getting a...

    Well said Sgt. Rock, that is all I was trying to convey. I hope along the way I did not make anyone feel like I was trying to force the idea of using dynaglide on them or that if you're not using it...

    I think that is because he uses a different suspension system. If I recall correctly it was earlier in this thread that he stated he hangs a taut ridgeline and then attaches his hammock via prusiks(...

    Any report on longevity of the 1.1 oz fabric hikingdad? I'm curious as I'm in the 240's right now and am very intrigued by the idea of being able to use such a lightweight fabric in single layer.

    I don't have the hammock unfortunately, or any amsteel, so I was trying to figure out if this is something that would work before I spent the money.

    Thanks very much for the response! Sorry I took so long to comment back this time. Good to hear it can be used for more than just ridgelines.

    If one was worried about it slipping that would be very easy to stop via a slippery half hitch under the line loc in the same way a slippery half hitch is used with cinch buckles or rings suspensions.

    So don't hang over a sharp rock. That's along the same lines as don't hang under widow makers. Site selection is just as important, if not more so, than what you're using for suspension.

    Good info, the weight rating was so obvious to me I didn't even think to mention it lol. All that other stuff didn't pertain to hammock near as much so it didn't even cross my mind.

    I don't claim to be an expert but from what I've seen that's it. Having that .25 mm less for zing it vs dynaglide is a way for the gram weenies to shed as much weight as they possibly can.

    I would think too that since, typically anyway, a whoopie sling is larksheaded around something like a whipped hammock end, that the strength would not be degraded anywhere near as much as an actual...

    If this were the case, then, even 7/64 wouldn't have the "necessary" safety ratios as that simple larkshead would drop it to less than 800 pounds along with the 10% for the splice. It seems very...

    Indeed, I was definitely not trying to force dynaglide on anyone. To each their own. Merely showing some figures and letting folks make up their own minds.

    Ah, I was thinking you were using a standard hammock that had the ridgeline attached to the suspension, not the other way around, my fault.

    Even according to "conventional" safety standards you should be able to use 1/8 whoopies and have a very wide safety margin. Even 7/64 would still be perfectly safe by typical standards.

    And that's kind of my point. Under normal hanging circumstances there should be no reason why even someone who weighs 400-500 pounds( well above the weight of the "average" hanger) can't hang with...

    You pull the ridgeline or suspension as tight as you can. I ask because you could have a guitar string tight and still have a 30 degree hang angle.

    Now keep in mind this is based off of a limited test based on simple number crunching, I have no real world experience with dynaglide(or whoopies slings for that matter, although I will eventually)....
