I just sewed up my first hammock, and now I have some suspension questions. I'm planning on using whoopie slings for suspension.
Dutch clips or biners: Are they necessary, or just a convenience? Can you just thread the toggle end of the tree strap through the loop without using any extra hardware?
Whoopies: How long should I make them? AHE sells a 25' section of Amsteel. Is 12.5 feet enough for each one. I notice that they say that the whoopies that they sell are made from 14' or rope.
Ridgeline: I have some 1.75mm zing it, can I use that? Can I make a whoopie out of it for an adjustable ridgeline?
