    I'm thinking the thin walls are sharp, and might prevent the ends from getting damaged or causing damage. I was thinking of plugging the ends with a small bit of foam and dipping the ends in a two part epoxy.

    You may be right, but I would think that using the pipe cutter would have rounded the edges enough.

    The pipe cutter left a knife edge on the cut that was quite sharp. I sanded the edges down and it is much better.

    That should be good enough. I made a nice three piece (each side) setup out of some light weight plastic at work for the spreaders. Never really liked the idea of using sticks Never considered using arrow shafts...great idea!!!

    Of some note to those concerned with weight the tarp hammock stuff sack with the suspension swamped out with whoopie s weights 3.6 lbs. This is acceptable to me considering the comfort of the hammock

    This was one of my first hammocks and I haven't set it up in months. All this talk is making me think I should set it up again
