Hi all. Is anyone using cam buckles (example from StrapWorks) to secure their hammock to strapping? Any pros/cons?
Oh sure..used them for a few years and they work great...just a bit heavy. I had a pair for the hammock and a pair for the tarp. The tarp ones would easily slide up and down the strap for height control of the tarp.
If you do use them, be sure to get the ones that are "center sprung" not "offset sprung" or they will pull funny on the strap.
Rings maybe less but still add a lot of wear over time. I'm thinking anything other than a lashing will cause a noticeable amount of wear and tear. When my webbing failed it failed at where the rings usually were and weakened the webbing.
Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

i personally am a fan of biners, although im still kinda new to this whole thing
