    HH Suspension Favorites

    Hey everyone.

    With my Hennessy on its was I thought I'd go ahead and start a thread asking what type of suspension everyone prefers to use on there Hennessy. Whether you like it stock, with whoopie slings, cinch buckles, etc. I'm just curious as I'm not sure how I want to run mine yet.

    Run it stock for a while. Then you can figure out what you need to change and what works just like it is.

    I run mine stock except I changed out the tree straps for an Atlas strap. I also tie mine with a figure eight on the bight hooked to a carabineer. It makes set up a bit quicker.

    Went to carabiner and rappel rings pretty soon after I got mine. Still use the lashing on stock lines for the kids. I needed quicker setup since I use mine constantly.

    I used the stock set up for a few months then switched to whoopies. I really found the whoopies much better and easier. It is a very individual thing with suspension systems.
    Take care,

    I use woopies with dutchware. Love the easy adjustability and how fast setup is.

    I put whoopies on my Expedition. However, I might go back and put continuous loops on them so I can use Dutch whoopie hooks. That way I don't have to pack wet whoopies up with the hammock.

    I used the stock suspension for a few months, then switched over to 'biners and rings, and used that for a few months.

    Then I went to whoopie slings, and my last 'mod' was to replace the toggles in the MSH with weight bearing 'biners, and I simply attach the whoopie sling to the 'biner directly. No risk of the loop coming up 'over the not and toggle' that way.

    I've used that last suspension for over a year now, and will probably stay that way.

    This is what I ended up doing. I had too much difficulty with Hennessey's stock suspension. I reallly like my whoopie sling (that I made) with my very strong biner.

    I like that idea... Ive had to pack up the wet ropes with the (mostly) dry hammock a number of times on overnights. No use to have to sleep on a damp hammock on a second night. Right now I have the stokc ropes, but going to do a whoopie conversion very soon!
