And another thing: using six foot whoopies over that distance not only means that you have no adjustability, but the adjustability you have will be hard to maximize because your whoopies are under tension. It's almost impossible to shorten or lengthen a whoopie under tension without getting your teeth involved, or growing a third hand. When the whoopie is under tension, you need to use your teeth on the adjustable loop bury to loosen it, one hand on the adjustable loop and the other on the tail of the adjustable loop.
Adding the continuous loops decreases the tension by adding length, which is essentially the same as using longer whoopies (10 foot).
And one more thing. If you're spanning 20 ft plus distances, that puts tremendous stress on your ridgeline. I've been using 1.75 mm Zing-It (480 lbs. breaking strength) and haven't snapped one yet (even spanning 25 ft. between trees). Then again, I only weigh 155 lbs. so I'm not putting a great deal of horizontal stress on my ridgeline. I have an adjustable ridgeline so if it looks too taut, I loosen it.
