Thanks. I guess weight wise I would only be cutting an oz or so. You system looks good, just a little too busy for me. I'll have to give it a try and report back.
At one point, I think from Brandan somewhere, give a link to some sprectra webbing
, or Dyneema. I think I am going to give that a go sometime soon. I little pricey, but it shouldn't stretch and will be lighter. The only drawback is it is .5" wide, so I will have to go around the tree a couple times not to do damage to the bark.
I am trying to get the total number of pieces in my setup down as low as I can so I can have less to keep track of. That and I want to keep everything painfully simple. One issue I always find with my hammock is that in a pinch, most people won't be able to set it up if I can't. Then again most people could set my tarp up and I could get under.
