    Hanging rope?

    Which rope to use between the caribiner attached to the webbing of the tree and the hammock itself? Which one to use. I am looking at this:

    Is that heavy duty enough?

    Oh yeah, THANKS!!!

    Kinda thick. I really don't understand how it will be used though. I was trying to think of other ways to attach without such a think rope.

    I will use this rope to tied to the hammock behind the whipping then up to the webbing around the tree. The rope and the webbing will be attached with a climbing grade caribiner. They have much smaller diameters of this type rope.

    Ok, that makes sense now. I would think the 5mm should work. A lot of people on here will suggest the higher tech lines from the sailing website. http://www.apsltd.com/Tree/d3000/e826.asp
    They look to be close to the same price as what you are looking for. Others can give you a better number, but on my setup nothing is rated below 1,000 lbs. Quite a few lines on that site are above 1k and less than 4 mm.

    I have some very nice 3mm Vectran left that I used to use on my sailboat. Breaking strength is 1900 pounds. Extremely low stretch as well and doesn't absorb water. It is a little spend though, or it was when I last bought some at $0.80/ft. I should have just enough left over for my hammock project.
