    I use deer antlers, cut to size. Works really well for me and I get to use another part of the animal I harvested

    I get some aluminum arrow shafts and cut them with a pipe cutter. Then take some fine sand paper to dull the ends a bit. They are really light and work great.

    I have a pair of biners that I put the Whoopies through. I ordered a set of Dutch buckles but didn't pay attention to the fact that my straps are two inches. Oh well when I get a hammock for one of my boys I will just make sure to get one inch straps for them since they are ALOT skinnier than dad is.
    The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highgest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps.

    I use Dutch Buckles on my main hammock now. Love 'em.

    BUT, for my other hammocks, I use 3" pieces of small ash branches from when I pruned the trees in my front yard. Cut the bark off of them, then painted 'em red for when I drop them on the ground.

    I use climbing rated 'biners that I put through the MSH, and then just attach the whoopies to. Takes seconds to put up, and always good to have a couple of lightweight 'biners that can hold your weight around.

    Here's where I got the idea:

    Works like a charm for me.

    ditto, I like the colors too, my son has blue, I have red, oldest daughter has purple...you get the point

    Whoa! Those are cool. Head and foot end *giggles*

    I like the idea of deer antlers too - au naturale.

    I just use a tent pole repair sleeve http://www.rei.com/product/753464/da...r-sleeve-132mm cut down and sanded. ~3g each, colorful in case I drop one and not small enough to disappear. I keep intending to drill a hole and add a keeper string but never seem to get around to it.
