Well, the whoopies arenīt really too long, itīs more of the attachment points in question being too narrow for the setup.
Iīve got the IKEA hammock stand and would like to try and hang my recently accuired Woodsman X in it. That hammock has whoopies directly attached to the hammock ends. The stand is too narrow to use the whoopies. Is there a smart way to either use the whoopies or the tree straps? I was thinking about taking the tree strap, which has a sewn loop at one end, loop the end of the hammock and simply tying the strap through the metal loop of the stand. I do not want to do something stupid that risks damaging my hammock though, so any thoughts are appreciated. The main purpose is simply to try out the new kit before heading out to the woods, so if the advice is to not do anything dumb Iīll live with that.
