    Yukon suggestions

    ok-
    This just came in last night.
    I need some suggestions to do away with the weight of their rope and S hook thingy.

    Obv, start with Amsteel.

    But I'm not sure if I could run an entire whoopie sling through it , or
    just make an amsteel loop or what?

    What would you do?

    Thanks!

    Throw a couple loops in the ends, then use Dutch Hooks on some whoopies. Best, most versatile setup, if you ask me.

    On my longer hammocks I use a continuous loop in the channels because I use a marlin spike hitch for my suspension. The continuos loop goes directly over my marlin spike in the suspension and I carry whoopies in case my trees are farther apart..

    I threw chain links on my crinkle. Basically same idea as Yukon. Benefits of links is that it allows me to use whoopie hooks which I have directly attached to my whoopies. That way I can just throw my suspension system on any hammock I own in just seconds. Its really fast and versatile set up.
