    Just seeing what it can take.

    I had success with them last night as well. I had the camera rolling as I sat down using them for the first time and was in the hammock all night using them as a link between my fixed eye and the other end over a toggle.

    Pics and vid when I return home this evening... or possibly tomorrow.

    Hey Opie might there be a pictorial in the making for these???
    My knife is so sharp it cut the sixth finger off my right hand! On the plus side, Inigo Montoya no longer hunts me.

    Well, the MIL, who we ask to stay at the house and watch the dog while we are gone, is staying the night. That means I lose my spot in the bed and HAVE to sleep in the hammock.

    So Im going to be using these same soft shackles I used up in Escanaba as biners to my eyelets on my posts.
