Hi everyone, thanks for being such a great resource for people new to hammocking (like me).
I've recently gotten an ENO doublenest, and purchased 2 6' whoopie slings and 2 7' polyester tree straps from Arrowhead Equipment.
I am going to REI today to get a couple of light climbing carabiners to simply attach the whoopie directly to a marlin spike hitch in the webbing.
My question is at the other end of the strap (the tree end). If I'm running one end of the tree strap through the loop in the other end before tying the marlin spike hitch, do I need dutch clips or another set of carabiners to clip the strap to itself, or should I be done with hardware at this point?
To be honest, if I'm running the strap through its own loop, I'm not sure where I'd even attach clips or a carabiner.
