Based on a thread started here by Crow, Here's a basic poll on what basic whipping style people use on their DIY gear...
Bridge or hybrid bridge / gathered end
WBBB style cinched channel
Hennessey roll method
Whipped gathered end (corners pulled)
Whipped gathered end (Jeff's 'W')
Speer's overhand knot
Crazy Creek's end channel (ENO too?)
Sheet Bend/Double Sheet bend
though i like the trek-light or anyone else who uses the sewn channel.
Warbonnet whipping for me. I thought that the general consensus was that it yielded the best comfort for a DIY, so I've used it exclusively.
I find it works very well and I've exceeded the comfort of my bought channelled hammocks on every build.
Knotty did a thread about whipping and that is what i like, but i do not understand anything on the poll LOL

1-Whipped gathered end with one corner pulled on head side.
2-Whipped gathered end with one corner pulled on head side on head end and Jeff's W on the foot end.
3-Jeff's W with one corner pulled on head side.
I didn't find that category so I didn't vote.
I have voted WBBB style because that is what I have done so far.
However, I am tempted to do and end channel (ENO) because that is the way my Switchback is done and it's my most comfortable hammock. Whether the end channel has anything to do with that - I don't know?

I do a whipped gathered end pulled out....get my most comfy set-up.....easy.....like the little frilly end.
Whooooo Buddy)))) All Good in the Backwood Hood.

I actually quite like the modified sheet bend method to teach and do a very simple but comfortable hammock. It's also easy to adjust. But my favorite is the WBBB
I whip the head end like normal, but use Jeff's W exaggerated to one side on the foot end the larger side of the W gives me a foot box
