My son and I are new to Hammock camping. As an entry into this world I purchased two Texsport Hobo Hammocks for us and found during the initial test of the hammock in the back yard the suspension supplied with the hammocks is both bulky and weak (stretched considerably with only my 70lb son in it).
To "fix" this poor design I considered whipping the ends of the hammocks (that have a sewn channel) and attaching my newly completed whoopie slings using a larks head at the whipping.
Then I decided to splice a continuous loop through the sewn channel and attaching the whoopie to those with a larks head. I guess my question is... has anyone done this before, or considered this? If so how did it work out for you?
