    Need some advice -- changing suspsension

    I want to change the suspension of my ENO DoubleNest from the stock rope/biners to a cinch buckle system.

    Just doing a little pre-planning, and 2 questions stick out at me.

    1) Should I consider doing a double pass? ENO does a double wrap with their ropes.

    2) To help facilitate pulling the chain link through, could I use knitting needles to help pull it through?

    Thanks!
    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...

    1 - I think you will be fine with a single pass. That is what I did with my DN.

    2 - I used the existing rope. Untie the knot and get to the point where you have a free end out each side of the channel. Tie your new amsteel chain link to one and use the old rope to put the new one in. Makes this process really simple.

    You will like your new lighter setup!
