Well I have my first one made. It is a down and dirty throw together. Going on vacation at the end of the week. I wanted to have it done it time to take with me. I used many of the ideas I have seen here and other places. I have about 10 ft 1.1 Oz Wallyworld special nylon. 2 2" steel rings. and 2 10 Ft good nylon straps.
The nylon, I just folded over to double up. I thought about folding length wise, and still have enough to build the next one that way. I tried it out tonight and did not go THUMP. That is a plus.
My question: what knot are you using for straps on the other end. The tree end of the strap. The way I tied mine tonithg gathered the strap inside of the knot. I think I would like to keep the strap as flat as I can. Tips and sugestions are greatly appreciated.
