I think most people will choose to whip the same way on both sides.
Funny thing is I did 2 methods of whipping assuming I would like one better than the other and would change it so both ends match. The odd thing is I preferred one end for my head and the other for my feet. Ill be interested to see if that holds true in the future when I try this with a nylon hammock. I do agree with you that most people will choose to whip both ends the same. I probably wont try anything different with this hammock as my son likes it the way it is. On my next hammock I plan on trying a couple of other options just to see if I like them better. After a couple of years I am still finding out what I like. I will say that todays hammock test tells me that I may just end up replacing my bridge with a gathered end yet.
