    UCR means Utility Constrictor Rope.

    I can make these in Amsteel as well. I stock Black and Blue.

    Cool, thanks. Using these UCRs with an 11' hammock having 110" SRL, and assuming the tree eats up most of the length of the hugger (or using a MSH and toggle to get the end of the UCR close to the tree), I calculate a minimum span between trees of about 14 feet. I'd be pretty happy with that.

    I'm very happy with the ridgeline setup I bought from you, so I'd be up for this!

    How about offering a package deal with the Kevlar straps and spectra UCR with continuous loops? Ultralight suspension to go with my SLD 1.0 hexon Trail Lair hammock...

    I can most certainly do that. My setup came in at 1.7 ounces for the full suspension with 6 foot Kevlar tree straps.

    I finished up a blue and yellow pair for a customer a little while ago.

    +1 on this. Those Spectra colors remind me of the late 80s. I worked in a department store at that time and I think 90% of the clothes we sold were one of those colors. But, back on topic, a packaged "UL suspension" would be great!

    That would make it so I don't have to change my continuous loops but I think I would prefer Spectra UCRs vs Amsteel. Am I wrong in thinking that Spectra is easier sliding than Amsteel? My Amsteel whoopies are not as easy to adjust as a Spectra set I had in the past.

    The spectra does seem to slide a bit easier. I think it's due to it having a different coating on it. I really like working with it.

    I can also make they differently and eliminate the button knot and then include soft shackles to attach the UCR to your hammocks continuous loop. That way you can have fun spectra colors and keep your amsteel loops.

    This can happen. I carry Kevlar, Dyneema, and Polyester webbing.
