    Question on Amsteel and knots

    How much is Amsteel derated if I half hitch a continuous loop to the suspension triangle of a bridge hammock for use of a Whoopie Hook? Look at first picture! Would this be considered a knot? Would it be better with a ring between the suspension and the continuous loop. Look at second picture!
