    Re-whipping worth it?

    Other than a marginal weight savings is there any benifit to removing the stock end cordage on my double ENO and re-whip the ends as discribed by Jeff in his Tothewoods web site? Has any one tried this or is it a simple case of...if it aint broke, dont fix it?

    I replaced the cord in one of my ENOs, but no real benefit. I was just bored one day.
    Trust nobody!

    There's no such thing as bad weather... just bad gear.

    You know I have a singlenest and I've been wondering if I should change out the suspension to a ring setup. I just cant seem to get the sag right all the time with the slap straps.

    I ordered my hammocks with the slap straps. I set up one evening and ended up, eventually, on the ground. I sold the slap straps, albeit at a bit of a loss, and ordered some straps from strapworks.com and switched over to a ring set-up.
