Hey, I’m new to this ‘mocking thing, and I gotta say--and the Dutch Biner is the latest example--you all sure can find dozens of ways to skin a cat, eh? I’m a paddler/kayaker, and I thought we obsessed about the mundane, having lengthy forum threads on drip rings—the rubber drip rings on a paddle! But the number of methods you guys think of to suspend a hammock—well, that about takes the cake. (in Shug’s case, a red velvet cake, to be specific).
Dutch Biners. Dutch Clips. Nacrabiners. Carabiners. Minicarabiners. Malin Spikes. Whoopie Slings. Garda Hitch. Tri-glides. Closed loops. Prussik knots. etc. etc. etc. I’m getting a headache!
That's the way I felt too. Who knew there were 100 different ways talk about a "rope" (as my bride so aptly puts it) to hang a hammock on.
