My first trip out with my Hennessy landed my but on the ground. The suspension cord cut through the loop on the tree hugger strap (I'm 205).
I had already ordered descender rings and carabiners and had modded an enos to run tree straps all the way to the hammock. But they hadn't come yet.
I've now read that the smaller diam. cord (spectra?) doesn't work well with rings. So I'm wondering what my choices are for replacing the suspension.
I know I can run straps all the way to the hammock but what are the other (lighter weight wise) options? I believe whoopie slings are made from amsteel (?), but I am leery of the small diameter rope. How would this be any safer then the spectra option that landed me on my butt?
