A little background:
I have an older Clark NA. It has ropes that are about as thick as a fore finger and look more suited to hoisting sails on a pirate ship, and I'd like to change that.
I'm an occasional hammock camper where weight is not much of an issue, but less bulk is definitely desirable. I'm also not an "enthusiast" that has an overwhelming desire to learn each and every detail about each and every suspension option known to man. I pretty much want to put it together and use it, not spend a bunch of time thinking about the next, newest, most popular tweak. Sacrilege I know, especially on an enthusiasts forum.
What I'm after:
I'd like a strong, less bulky, easy to set up/take down suspension system with little to no knots involved. Permanent knots ok, just nothing I have to tie/release every time I want to use it.
The whoopie slings sound pretty good but I'm a "little" concerned that they are too far in the opposite extreme size wise, IE too small. I know the strength is not an issue, I'm just a little worried that it might be a bit difficult to work with. Probably completely unfounded. Is there any issue using these with the Clark drip rings? How long should they be? Any other physical requirements/limitations to consider?
Tree straps sound good, but I'm a bit confused as to the best option. I saw a set somewhere that had multiple attachment loops for hang adjustment but considering that whoopie slings have so much adjustment I'm not sure it's necessary.
Ok, now that I'm done making a short story long what are the odds of coming up with a consensus on the best system given my relatively uninformed desires, and where might I find said ultimate system?
Piece of cake right?
