    Idea with a whoopie hook

    I use a few different suspensions with my different hammocks but I like to use the same tree straps. Now I would say that I'm a toggle guy all the way but I just bought some whoopie hooks to fool around with. WOW! a very cool piece of hardware. Now it makes sense to set it up like Dutch explains in his instructions but my whoopies where already made and I wanted to use them on multiple hammock. So here is what I have come up with, sorry if it has already been done. I just have not seen anyone post it as of yet. BTY I think backwards.

    KRSHOME Your innovations get added to this mixture of hammock hanging and help our advancement. When you go to a group hang you will see almost as many different suspensions as there are hammocks. And they all work. The Hammock Police will be right over.

    Krshome have you seen Dutch's latest hardware? Have you since tweaked your suspension?

    That is the setup I think I want to do. How long is that loop that the hook is connected to?

    Wow thats an old thread. Ok so I literally changed my suspension to the way Dutch intended to work the day after I posted this. The ability to remove the suspension is the key to happiness. Yes I have Dutches new offerings Im now rocking some speed hook. I got them when they where only 4 bucks. I have been to a few hangs and your right I have seen some crazy rigs. The continuous loop was 8-10 inches, if you look close its just hitched on the hook probably not the best way but its fine.
