Ok thanks! What do you do with all the slack rope? And I just looked at the spectra, and is there any way that I can find it cheaper?
Slack rope? After you tie the Spectra on and are happy with the method, you simply *remove* the slack. There might be cheap Spectra to be found, but I wouldn't. Your hammock strength is only as strong as the weakest link, and I wouldn't trust cheaper/lighter Spectra to hang me safely.
