    Quick Blackbird Question

    I currently have an eno and am looking to upgrade to a blackbird. right now im using a tree strap/whoopie sling suspension on the eno and i LOVE this setup. I am curious if there is a way to rig this up onto the blackbird. looking that the adjustable webbing suspension option, how is the webbing attached to the end of the hammock? is it tied through a loop there? if so could i cut the webbing off and place a biner through that loop and then connect the whoopie sling to that?

    Yep. I have 'em on my WBBB 1.7 Double. Super easy to switch over (I followed Raul's instructions to the letter -- very helpful). I had ordered it with the adjustable webbing straps and now use those as my extra long tree straps. We have some big trees here. Heh heh.

    I have the whoopie set-up on it. Less weight and bulk. Easy. Fun. Stylish.

    I have the WBBB with adjustable straps and I just removed the straps and attached my whoopie slings to the triangles for the straps. Do you think that will cause my whoopie slings to abraid? Should I just change out the triangles as well?
