I'm game, I ordered some CC Buckles today and will try them out. So far I am happy with the ring buckles and I haven't been tying slip knots. I will admit ONE time when I sat in my hammock it very gently let me to the ground. Upon inspection I did not have the loose end of the webbing straight back towards the tree, so I chalk it up to user error.
But I will try the CC Buckles and see how they work.
