very nice, I like the idea of the whipping on the end of the whoopi sling so that it dosent release from the marlin spike knot.

I'm still learning about bridge suspensions. Is there an advantage to a single line for the triangle as opposed to two separate matched cords attached to the hammock?
Edit: Actually, I just rewatched Grizz's "The Making of a GrizzBridge part three (Gone Loopy)" video. What if you did two separate cords with eyes on each end? Would it be reasonably easy enough to make them the same length? And Grizz, would you recommend using the type of eye you did in the video for attaching to the soft shackles near the hammock, or would you use the new whip knot eye for both ends of each cord?

With all the talk about knots derating amsteel, is there a reason to be concerned?
I've use soft shackles with no problems so I'm not particularly worried but others may be. I just made a couple things you showed and found it very fun to fiddle.
