I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
"Bless you child, when you set out to thread a needle don't hold the thread still and fetch the needle up to it; hold the needle still and poke the thread at it; that's the way a woman most always does, but a man always does t'other way."

For the cost it's so easy to convert to adjustable webbing. Issue gone, don't ever have to worry about stretch again. I seriously recommend moving on, just for that reason. HYOH
Thanks, I contacted Brian from, "butt in a sling" and he was awesome. I ordered their Bias suspension system.
Next question, tarp?
A quick clarification... Polypropylene is good. I happen to think polyester is great. Polypro's UV breakdown, abrasion resistance and overall strength for weight are not up to polyester. Polypro has a lower melting point. A lower strength to thickness ratio. Both are equally non-stretchy (actually, polypro is as stretchy as nylon, but once stretched, it doesn't have "memory" like nylon, so it stays stretched and never does it again).
That said, I'd take polypro all day long and twice on Sunday over anything other than polyester. It's far superior to nylon.
Any material will fail over time with use, stress and exposure. My experience is that high quality polyester can take more use before failing. I think polypro is good. Just not as good.
Imropincows... got your order and will get it out this week. You'll enjoy whoopies and toggles once you get used to them.
I got one as a backup and it's done great. Light, comes with guy lines and stakes and its own bag. I am sure others have other great ideas.
