What setup do you all use to hang and what would you recommend to a Newby?
I just started using my cinch buckles recently. I made a short 3 foot section on each side of the hammock to give me plenty of adjustment. The last time I went on an over night trip I used the short webbing and a biner to spectra rope. Well, I hate to cut rope so each side had like 25 feet, a real waste of weight, and worse, a real hassle to use between fairly close trees.
Now I have replaced that small length of webbing with a 15 foot length of webbing on each side, no rope, but I think the weight might actually have increased a bit, not much.
If you were setting it up how would you go and why. Thank you for sharing your experience.
