    I got impressed with the same setup at the April SEHHA Hangout, Shadowmoss. I fell in love with it and find it a joy to use. I can get set up in about a third of the time, leaving more time for the important things, like taking it easy in my now set-up hammock. The ring buckles with the polyester webbing give almost no stretch versus the old ENO SlapStrap Pro's I was using. And the figure 9's? No wonder they won a Backpacker Editor's Choice award, what a cool, easy, well thought out and well made piece of gear! They make life a LOT easier!

    Edit: I just got my new ENO replacement in yesterday and one of the first things I did with it was add the ring buckles to it. So now I have ring buckles on my ENO without having to purchase extra cordage. All I did with it was remove the stock heavy biners, untie the cordage in it already, pull it out, add the rings and retie the cordage in the same fashion it was tied in originally. It took a little work to get the cord run back through the end "tunnels", but came out just fine.
