    I'll probably mode the one for the yard more like my other hammocks with whoopies, but I want to keep my daughters easy for now.

    So I think telling her the 30* angle and a daisy chain strap will the simplest, atleast until she has some time to play with different set ups and find one shes likes.

    I have switched to whoopie slings mostly for weight and the ability to really dial in your hang but I still have a pair of slap straps and wouldn't hesitate to use them. I have never had any problems with them stretching. Im 6' and 185 lbs so I am not small. My biggest complaint is they are heavy.

    Question

    OK folks why do you think they still sell the nylon slap straps? is just to keep the price $10 cheaper? why not sell all of them in poly?
