I recently bought the JRB continuous system. It is quick, easy and I don't see how you could make it much lighter. I think the price is right too. In fact last time I looked it was on sale! I couldn't have made it diy any cheaper by the time I aquired all the materials and spent the time making it. Love the Dutch clips and beaners
. I have 3 hammocks so I bought extra loops so all I have to do is clip on the whoopies from one set.
