    ENO Doublenest with Whoopies and descender rings

    I recently switched out the stock suspension on my Doublenest. Here's some pics:

    It's a pair of your Whoopie slings I've had sitting around and finally went about putting them on. Going to be doing this same thing to my Hennessy this weekend once I get my whoopie trade from Te-wa.

    Looks good. If I had a ring like that I would make my whoopie sling around that ring. That would adjust alot easier than dragging the adjustable end around a toggle. YMMV.

    Yes, I sleep in a hammock. Please pass the Grey Poupon.

    That would be a good idea if you were making your own whoopie slings.

    I do the same the same as the OP on my hammock except I use UCRs instead of whoopies.

    Cheers

    I got the idea from other posters and threads. From what I could deduce, the ring helps stop water running all the way down to the hammock.

    Just attached it last night. It's some 3mm climbing rope I think. I made it adjustable with a two half hitches. Going to try it out this weekend at the Arizona Hang #4. Once I figure out the best length for me, I'll take out the adjustment and secure it with a larks head. I secured the fixed end with a larks head to the whoopie sling under the dead eye of the whoopie. I then just ran the other end through the whoopie and two half hitched it for adjustment. I had this same setup on my Singlenest and it worked great until I figured out the proper sag. I got the Doublenest for my bday recently and I'm going to use it as my cold weather hammock with a Te-wa uq when I don't have to worry about bugs.
