That's a good question/argument. For a true comparison, you'd have to have a longer hammock to have the whipped ends the same distance as the channeled. My thought (just a thought) is the channel loops act (on a small scale) as a spreader. Where a whipped end squeezes the fabric together. Some like one, some like the other HYOH.
I'm definitely not trying to start a debate though.
It'll be alright Friday!
