this is always a hot topic of debate. i use very fat rapel rings as you can see and the standard cord and have never had a problem....
if i am staying in the same place for a few days, i will losen the line off in the morning so that its not being pinched in the same place the whole time... with the separate tarp ridge line it means i can still use it for shelter...
i know im not really answering your question and thats because i dont know. ive never had the ulba or used any other hammock so will only comment on things ive had experience with. prevents accidents i find.
you can try it and MAYBE risk it breaking... it has happened in the past with other peoples hammocks and the thinner rings... but in reality i just dont know...
glad you liked the videos though! i hope the 101 video gave you some pointers that you can take away and use with the ul!
