I am new to hammocks, but I have experience with the outdoors and rescue work. The 2 ring with webbing suspension makes sense to me, and I have used it before...but it seems that nobody is using this system anymore.
Everyone now is using whoopie slings apparently due to weight savings...but I guess I just don't get it. How much weight are you saving, and are there risks involved with the new whoopie sling and marlin spike setup? Honestly the attachment to the marlin spike seems like the likely place where it will just fall off and thus fail.
Anyway, I am looking at getting a nice hammock and am wondering what system to go with...it seems that price is pretty close.
Thanks for your help.
