    Ahh, yes, Kid's do not attempt to use a hammock suspension components and climbing ascenders to walk up the wall to test/demo the strength of amsteel spices.

    Thanks, Paul.

    One more thing- the weenie in my just HAS to ask....

    The Cinch buckles are 26 grams per---a bit heavier than other stuff like our Rings but hey no backup knot.

    Kid status cuts off at the grave, anything beyond that and you should know better. Younger and well-- you fall on your butt walking up walls and I am going to laugh my A%@ off just like you all would have if I had

    I'm a confirmed cinch buckle user. I love how easy they are to use! I haven't tried your style yet, but since I'm on a hammock-making spree at the moment, it looks like a good time to try them! (Is there no end to the madness?)

    hmmm, I picture the expressions on the teen daughters with their friends, watching the 50 yo mom 'literally' climbing the walls might be priceless- either way- fall or climb!

    Thanks again for the info!
