To use the ring buckles, you do NOT need to modify the Hennessy hammock in any way. No need to "remove" the spectra or anything else.
That's certainly true. Replacing the Spectra offers some weight savings, and makes you more familiar with the way the HH is actually tied though, which I think is a good thing.
Also, I find that a smaller line holds the rings together more tightly. That may not be practically necessary, but I prefer it that way.
