    For those of us wondering where/what the next advancement might be

    I think this is it.
    Dutch toggles (thin wall ti tubes with polished line holes, grooves on the ends to help lock the slip knot and/or hold boots or pack in place?

    Before I make the leap I'll wait to hear ProfessorHammock's findings.

    Agreed with Moel

    no jumping on anything until P.Hammock has run the Cray or BigBlue.

    Where do I pre-order?
    Might as well get a 3rd one to use with the bear bag, PCT style.

    way off topic...'bear bag, PCT style'

    check out Lonewolf over at Whiteblaze....24,000 miles on the AT and slept with food in his tent every time.
    Me, I just prefer to lay my food bag under someone elses hammock

    Back to the topic at hand.
    Let's go over the advantages:
    1. even more variable in length than a whoopie?
    2. can be set up via carabiner as one system=less likely to leave tree hugger
    3. its radical and you'll be the coolest at the next group hang
    4. more?

    Cons:
    1. slower to adjust than a whoopie (but not by much)
    2. keeps your mouth off the amsteel (i've seen hangers use their teeth
    to hold the hammock rig while adjusting the whoopie and amsteel is
    probably rough on the enamel
    3. Dont loose that fancy Dutch Ti toggle! yes something else to keep up with
    and harder to fabricate in the field compared to a MSH
    4. more?
