Soooo Mr. Cordage Savant there .... I thought you may be tickled to know that I just finished going back to cord, Marlinhitch which is .... to use an over-used word ... awesome
and I made a short piece of light weight alum from an old tent pole (ha-ha) to attach and make the post. Ain't got no Bloodwood. Well a boomerang but it shall remain unscathed.
For now using Bluewater 4 mm cord. Tensile strength of 921 lbf. 30 feet cut in two. Two 4 foot web straps ... loop stitched in one end of each. Total weight of all combined: 6.5 ounces. Not to shabby.
The camo webbing, two light biners was 9.2 ounces. Not to bad either.
I will use webbing and biners for easy camping ... campgrounds but have been feeling the pull of the cordage to harken back to my humble hammock beginnings.
The webbing and biners just feels too easy sometimes and I feel shameful...
Going to get some amsteel blue or that Vertrex (or whatever it is).
Brilliant vid and thanks for the nudge.
After a trip I always feel that deep need to tweak!
