    Opie, here are pics from a test hang with the whoopies and JRB HR long UQ. Findings: 1) snake skins need to be kept tight on the ends of the hammock to prevent interference with slings; 2) for sure need to use UQ suspension method recommended by the Jacks - half hitch works pretty good when wrapped over the gathered ends (also means over the snakeskins); 3) you might consider adding a few more inches out to the bury for the loop to give some more room in handling the loop and any UQ suspension for HH's.

    Still, this is a great leap forward. Giving this an A+.

    Rock... How many extra inches are you thinking?

    Right now its 6" between. Are you thinking 9" or 10"?

    Also... I can make the fixed eye smaller... like 1".

    The fixed eye is good as is. Any smaller and I think it would be too small.
    For the start of the bury, I was thinking another 6 inches maybe. Just enough to move the exit point out from the end of the hammock a little further for some extra hand room to operate a little easier. Some others may prefer it just like you have it???????? Sorta up to you based on any comments you get from others

    No need for that. I'm good with these. Just saying for future orders you might consider more spacing. Thanks for the service.
