    I agree, less is more; I have the same set up except I use a Dutch Tarp Flyz on one end, the dutch hook on the other. My tarp is fixed to the ridge line with prusik's. I do want to learn how to weave the dutch hook onto the end; I just tied mine but I love the refined look when someone does what you did.

    Love the set up! Makes 9Biner's from Nitize look like huge chunks of metal or plastic hanging from the trees!

    It is quick to hang, although I haven't had it out in anything nasty to truly test it, but I'm confident that I will be happy when I do.

    My fav knot is the Prusick.
    It's one of mine too and you'd be able to tell just by looking at how many I use in various parts of my hammock setup.

    Here ya go http://www.flickr.com/photos/adrenoj...7631135014616/ it's a step by step I did for doing a bury for a fixed eye with a locked brummel. Just follow the steps in the photos, yours won't have the brummel, and instead of leaving the eye you pull it down tight around the dutch hook. You can PM me if you have any questions.
