I made continuous loops and attached cinch buckles. Before finishing the larks head there I put the loops in the mix so my ridgeline is pretty much right at the hammocks end. Seems like a good place…sound about right, if there is a “right” that is?
Couple observations and share tips if you have them please…Amsteel Blue, this stuff is difficult to cut and the ends don’t melt well either. And anyone ever have the blue rub off on your hands? Interesting stuff.
Spot on with what you've done. As you said, there is no right way but you certainly did one of many possibilities. To finish off the end of amsteel, backsplicing is a good way to go.
