    I've been reading the thread too and would love to see these in action.

    Would you bring them to the Texas Hang for show and tell?

    Other than some minor fuzzing I haven't seen any significant wear on my 1/8" amsteel blue lines. I am also using a 10" nominal bury (after the bury it is more like 8.5") and haven't had any slippage, even in the rain. I'm using a WBBB and about a 30 degree sag and I weigh about 155 lb, so I'm not stressing this system too much.
    I am using 7/64 amsteel with a 10.5 inch bury, no wear whatsoever, minor stretch where the line goes into the other line, nothing major, still good. I did the 7/64 cause its a tad lighter.

    I used the 1/8" and once I went and got the darner needle, it was a piece of cake.

    Sorry if this has been answered but:
    The rope connects directly from tree strap to hammock? Is water flow a problem? Do you use a drip line?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    It's not a problem, the water flows down the tail end of the sling. If you're very concerned with the water flow, you can always take the tail end and tie it back on to the standing end with a loose half hitch.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Thanks for asking BillyBob...I was wondering myself

    Thanks, I figured it worked something like that.

    I just ordered some Amsteel last night so I will be back in 3-5 business days to plead for help with fixing my mistakes!
