    Double Brummell?

    Just watch part3 for the umpteenth time & was confused about the Brummell knots at both ends of the suspen. Triangle. The first one I get, but how would you pass the long standing end thru on the second end with the other loop completed? Anyone have this problem? Thank you

    I made a video about making a fixed length ridgeline with a fixed loop and locked brummel at both ends. I had some questions just like yours about how to finish the second brummel so I uploaded the clip of me doing it:

    Hey Grizz, Just curious, have you changed your formula for the suspension triangle? You where doing 80% of the spreader bar which is short compared to the Bridge hammock sold nowadays. I have made about 7 or 8 Grizz hammocks and now starting another. I have always had good results with you instructions but I did make my suspension triangle a little longer. BTW thanks for putting your time in doing these awesome instructions.

    howdy--I continue to make _mine_ using something in the 75-85% range, more usually at the higher end. That works for me given (i) 0.625" diameter Easton poles, and (ii) my weight, in the 190-200 lb range, depending.

    For a given suspension triangle and spreader bar length, the compression on the spreader increases linearly with
    the weight of the occupant. So if I was selling one for a market where I might have folks in the 250 - 300 lb range in the hammock, I'd probably do what Brandon has done and increase the suspension triangle to knock back the compression for the larger end of the customer base.

    hope this make sense.

    howdy Shug! It would be better to see me hanging, but typing will have to do for now.
    Hey, we're vacationing with the family of a son's significant other, and we got to showing
    youtube vids with family members last night. Had to pull out 'Packa Pillowtalk', good fun!
    They say you're charming, and that I'm crazy. Seems backwards to me.... <grin>

    catch you on the rebound
