they work great!
one thing i learned is that the webbing needs to stay strait, in-line w/ it's self or it will slip. so i ran a bite back through the rings just to keep it strait. took a rest (oh, the life of a tester)... no prob.
probably the only reason it pulled to the side is because i didnt want to use the wal-mart webbing & i don't have any of ed's right now, so i used some tubular which is much heaver. so just the weight of the tubular webbing pulled it to one side when there's no weight in the hammock.
but now i'm going to try using the bight like suggested in the last post. should accomplish the same thing.
The bight idea should help keep it straight. I've also noticed that tubular webbing tends to be quite a bit slipperier than Ed's poly stuff.
