    I found that if you cut the end slightly concave before gathering you can hang very flat and minimize shoulder squeeze.

    It also works good with a loose hang.

    This may not be a good thing but it does work well.

    Thats how i clip to my SLS.
    Have you got pictures of your hammock set up? I would like to see how your biners lie in the end channel when the hammock is loaded.
    I have some Elderid nineteen G climbing krabs, so two of those would only add 38g to my hammock!

    This design seems kinda interesting. Maybe I'm missing something, but if there is a failure in one area doesn't that ruin the whole system requiring a full replacement?

    Thus far into my hammock expeditions this is my favorite setup. Easiest to adjust to get the right lay and easiest to setup. I prefer it over the whoopee slings I've made and you can be as high off the ground as you please with whatever tree distance you have. Optionally add a small zing it Ridgeline if you put a rainfly over it.

    How are you getting 2500 lbs breaking strain from 3mm dyneema.

    3mm sk75 is rated at 1000kgs breaking strain which is 2200lbs.

    Are you sure it is 3mm

    1/8" is slightly larger than 3mm which could account for an extra 300lbs breaking strain

    YES.

    rather an expensive option in New Zealand at $5 per meter.

    We all have our favorite system based on our needs

    I honestly think that any of us can come up with a hundred different ways to hang a hammock that will all work, and we'll all change our system a dozen times before we come up with the best system for us individually. And then we'll change it again!

    Do we all have just too much time on our hands?
    Maybe. Or maybe, finally, entering a phase in my life where I can finally learn a few things, try some creative adaptations in my life, that was put on hold as I raised a few kids, and finally build the fort I always wanted in my backyard and even out in the woods.

    I like KNOWING the many different options there are out there to ensure i can hang wherever i find myself. Straps with j-bends, dutch hooks on whoopies, dutchbuckles, the grappler, soft shackles, ucr ridgelines, sls, one tree suspension, bushcraft paired tri-pods, whittled anchor pegs, groundhog stakes, boom stakes, peapods....i can hang between two truck hitches with diy lashed-stick bi-pods keeping me up, i am fairly certain i will never sleep on the ground again THANKS TO ALL OF OUR CONTROBUTING MEMBERS' DESIRE TO SHARE THIS KNOWLEDGE \m/

    Great write-up! If I could, I would give it 5 stars for great information, originality, clarity, attention to detail, and nice, hairy legs. ;-)
