    What kind of ENO knot?

    My ENO Doublenest just arrived (48 hrs after ordering-thanks to Sarah at Gear for Adventure). Before I cut the factory suspension ropes, has anyone figured out the kind of knot used? Part is buried, but it looks somewhat like an alpine butterfly. Just curious...

    I didn't look that closely. I just whacked that sucker in half and was done with it.

    I second that. Got rid of it and went with the whoopieslings.

    I didn't pay it much attention either ... the line goes through the channel twice and is knotted ... then the knot pulled back into the channel ... but past that I couldn't say either.

    Was just curious. Had to also buy a Samish knife to properly cut the line. I think my wife is suspicious that I am starting my own gear store in the basement.

    Did not have a problem untying the knots on my doublenest, to be honest it looked like plain ole square knot to me. Replaced with JRB triglides

    I just received my whoopie slings in the mail today and I am going to install them this weekend. I looked at the knot on my hammock. It looks like two loops with the tail that attaches to the clip is held down by the outside of the two loops.
