    Hey guys,
    i want to change the suspension on my Clark nx 150 to this bb type carabiner webbing suspension. Anyone know where I can get buckles like the new warbonnet buckles?

    I also recieved a new WBBB + summer yeti for my wife, it has these buckles too-first thing i did:

    1. remove the suspension - all the webbing + buckles

    2. apply 16 feet of amsteel via larks head to hammock suspension

    3. make whoppie slings!

    yay, now its way lighter, around 24oz.

    I do not like these type of buckles. Over time they wear your straps and they start to fray.

    Fray has never been reported as a long term problem with cinch buckles.

    yeah, i talked to hogg tyed, he does indeed have the common steel square cinch-buckles, and those are the ones that slipped, i'm going to send him these and see if they slip or hold at his weight which is a good bit more than you, so we'll see after he tries the new ones. i found them not to slip, but only loaded them to around 300 or so.

    I should have read to the end before posting. I was going to say what Warbonnetguy said.

    brandon, I am using mine a lot right now, if you send me the buckles I can give you a report on performance over an extended period by the way I am 350+

    I love the new buckles, and am anxiously awaiting the new buckles WBG has in development for replacements on all of my BB's, and probably on my Clark as well.

    I saw that onrope has a similar buckle, and ordered a set to try out until WBG releases his new ones. Size is wrong, though (1-3/4" instead of 1") - but I'm going to try them anyway.

    DON"T BUY THE ONROPE BUCKLES _ TOO HEAVY!
