    Good luck. I tried the cf arrowshafts and they all crushed in at some point. And I was hanging on the knot and not the toggle!

    One thing that is really important is to make sure your strap is very straight behind the buckle before you crawl in.
    I like how you can ratchet it do lower the hammock under load. Pretty easy.
