I just bought my 1st hammock (Grand Trunk UL - it's cheap and light) and need a system to hang it. Went to Gander Mountain today and spent $20 on some ENO Slap Straps. They came in a nice sack but are 12 oz. They seemed to bulky/heavy to me so I returned 'em - same day. I was wondering what I'd do next to figure this out and tapped into the power of Google, which led me to this forum.
I'm trying to get educated in effective hammock use and have been checking out Dutch's offerings. I understand how his Dutch Buckle and Whoopie Hook systems both work, but I don't see the advantage one has over the other. They are similarly priced and lightweight, so does anyone have any advice???
Thanks in advance!
