I bought my webbing at a climbing store. It is tubular webbing, very supple but heavier of course than the rope. I don't have a HH but a Claytor, so I will have to use my rope if I switch and I really hate to cut it but from what I am hearing here, cutting a 25 foot length in half would be about right, then add a 3 foot length of webbing on a cinch buckle and a tree hugger on each side.
I just weighed everything. 13 (26 total) feet of webbing with buckles= 13 oz.
25 feet of rope = 4 oz., buckles and six feet of webbing = 7 oz plus 2 oz for tree huggers (not needed on the total webbing rig) is 15 ounces.
Conclusion, they are within 2 ounces of each other if you use cinch buckles.
I guess if you use buckles this whole question is moot. Mule
