Hi folks, first post. I am glad to have discovered the forums, as I own a HH and Speer, and have gone from hanging to ground gripper and back several times over the past few years. This forum has gotten me fired back up to hang again, even to the point that my HH Exped Asym is at 2Q/ZQ's getting Mod #2 as we speak (thanks, Donna!).
Here's my question. In doing the forum dump on the ring buckle systems, I started looking at my HH to see if I can make it work. First thing I noticed is that it appears my line leading from the HH is much heavier than others I've seen in the pictures (not sure of what it actually is). In fact, it's so think that I have concerns that a ring buckle will even work correctly in it. My HH is at least 4 years old, I think, and of the heavyweight variety as I weigh in around 245. Has anyone played with a HH and ring buckles using this heavy weight line? I'd like to get some feedback before I start messing around and possibly cutting that line off of the hammock.
