    WTB: Suspension Line

    I just got a Blackbird with the strap suspension system. I'm not really that crazy about it, and I don't like the Amstel Blue rope either. I would like to have some sort of line that I can use to hang my hammock the old fashioned way that I know, with a figure 8 tied onto a tree strap. I'm looking for something in a subtle color, not blue, red, yellow, etc...

    I also would like some dark-colored shockcord for the side tie outs, if you have any of that laying around.

    I'd recommend a store...like REI
    They will ship you any rope you like (in any subtle color) climbing rope
    and shock cord too! Shock cord
