Scratching my head over this one.
Recently changed to a gathered end hammock from a channel hammock. Previously I had run a length of webbing through the channel, tied it off with a double fisherman's bend, and used a nano biner as my main attachment point from there - having my hammock's ridgeline, hammock suspension, and UQ suspension all going to the biner, which was flexible as it allowed me to switch things around as I pleased.
Now on this gathered end hammock I'm not sure what to do. I've also changed suspension from descending rings to whoopie slings. Ideally I'd like to keep the biners in the mix as they're so handy to have.
Would an amsteel continuous loop between the gathered end and the biner be the best bet? What would be the smallest size I could make safely using 7/64 amsteel?
Alternatively, would a length of amsteel with a locked brommel loop on either end (saw in another thread) work better? Again, how small could I go with this?
Would placing the biner on the WS work? If I were to larkshead the fixed eye over the gathered end and also attach the biner through the larkshead, or through the left over bit of the fixed eye after the larkshead. Not sure if it'd sit right for the hammock ridgeline, or that is safe - if it would put additional strain on the setup
Or is there another solution out there altogether?
