    Thanks! It doesn't tell me what Hennessy uses, but who cares! That aircore spectra looks like it will do the trick. Now I just need to find a supplier and I'll switch out to that. Thanks, again.

  10. using descender rings to suspend a hennessy, using the stock ropes?

    any problem with that? does the compression of the rope cause a problem with the ropes? I foolishly used figure 9 biners a while ago and they messed up the sheathing a little, so I want to avoid...

    JToon, it was to attach the rope to the strap - attach the biner to the strap, wrap the rope around the biner. :) Just a way to avoid the knots - thinking ahead to when my hands are frozen. :)

    these things came from a home improvement store - used mostly for hoisting stuff, I reckon... :rolleyes: The core looks good, though, and the sheath isn't completely destroyed, just frayed a bit.

    hungry figure 9 biners..

    they ate the sheath to the stock ropes on my Hennessy hammock. Bad biners!
