    I bought a couple of becket loops a while back to go with an Appalachian Hammock from RBTR's fire sale and finally had a chance to try them out this morning. Full disclosure, until today, I had not actually tied a becket hitch (well, for the purposes of hanging a hammock, anyway) - I've used either daisy chain, cinch buckles or whoopie slings on a marlin spike hitch to huggers.

    I have to say I love the simplicity of the becket hitch, and after hanging in the hammock for a bit, I can't imagine trying to untie with without the "auxiliary grip loop" of the becket loops. I just ordered another pair in black so I can outfit my other "main" hammock and have different colored loops on the head/foot ends.
