Question for the Brain Trust:
What are the bottom line pros and cons of UCR's vs. Whoopie-Slings?
(Lot's of great info in the subthread but almost too much info to dig through!)
I've been using a Crazy Creek buckle suspension on my Hennessy for a couple of years. Works great but a bit bulky.
I've been thinking about converting to this set-up:
tree hugger (looped through itself) => biner => UCR (Amsteel) => hammock <= UCR <= biner <= tree hugger
Seems like this is simple, short, light, (and if the UCR holds), functional.
Do the UCR's hold or slip like some of the single line ascender knot rigs seem to?
The Whoopies seem like a nice solution but a lot of extra rope and the toggle seems like one more step/complication than the UCR idea.
I look forward to all the expert opinions!
