That way it would be hardware free. I was wondering if this would be a good idea or just suicide.
Thanks for the input in advance,
I have used the exact suspension Grizz explains in his video. It is really a great setup. The only difference is I went back to looping my ridgeline over the continious loops and then attaching the continious loop to the diamond knot with the slide. I have maybe 5-6 hangs on the setup and it seems to be handling my 215 lbs. just fine. I have been more worried about the Dynaglide than I have the diamond knot attachment. I have never weighed it but it weighs nothing. I have several pics in my gallery.
