[QUOTE=AquaExp;926216] thought on lighter rope than the amsteel? something ridged that easy to undo knots from a dynamic rope preferably with a core...
Sarge recently posted a video on his 1 oz. Dyneema whoopie / muletape hugger suspension. All insufficiently safety rated, as far as popular perception has it. He included many warnings that "YOU'RE GONNA DIE!"
But he aint dead, yet...
It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
According to that chart, if you hang at a 30 degree angle then you are putting almost exactly your weight on the suspension... So assuming that is correct, 300 lbs is sufficient for me.
That said, I've heard it said and definitely agree; I'd rather carry a few extra ounces so that I can climb in and fall asleep soundly knowing my suspension won't fail than shave a few ounces and have trouble sleeping because I'm worried about it failing. If I was an engineer and could properly convince myself that a lesser suspension was OK then I probably would, but I'm not so I won't.

I think the "Single Line Suspension (SLS)" in the sticky is still the best option for me that I have seen as it allows you spare rope were ever you need it. I always carry about 15 metres of paracord anyway and rope is always useful in the bush has a billion uses. This is just another means to carry something similar but slightly more heavy duty that keeps pack weight down as it serving multiple purposes. i'm leaning towards the 1.8mm dynaglide rated to 475kgs which is more than ample for my weight besides I wont be shock loading.
Cheers again gents and ladies if there are any out there.
It will all become clear if you watch some of the YouTube videos posted by site members like Shug and others. In the end anything that holds 3 or 4 times your weight and does no harm will work fine.
