Without much tension in the SLS the distance between trees has to be met with relative elevation on the trees: the further apart the trees the higher the straps need to be placed, for instance. Before long you run out of the ability to hang.
When the Warbonnet strap and buckle order gets here I can experiment with cranking tension into the line by the tag end of the straps. The more tension applied the more the line acts as a beam and less as a sling, rhetorically speaking. A 300 pound man could put more into it in the field than a 165 pound man but for every pound of tension impartd to the line you gain elevation in your own favor, keeping things down here where people live, putting our machines to work!
Those burried loops open up a whole new world, huh?
Very cool, olddog.
