I like them cause they come in one piece and you don't have the fiddle factor of having to align the rings.
I am also testing out strap length. I am currently working with 12' on each side and that is way more than I need. might bring it down to 8' and see.
sorry jazilla, i was being sarcastic. after reading through the whole thread i had to ask the most asked question.
when i got my 15' straps i thought it would be overkill, but on my last outing they were the perfect length. i had about 6" left on one strap and about 10" on the other. if they were any shorter i would have had some issues finding a decent spot to hang.
