    Exclamation Updated Suspension Poll

    I just saw the old suspension poll and was wondering, particularly with the popular use of ring buckle supports, if that has changed anything. So, here's the poll, folks. Same question, for the most part: What type of suspension do you use to hang with?

    Ditto. Ring buckles rock.

    I'm still experimenting with the cleats that ALHikerGal came up with on one hammock. I have noticed the torquing of the cleats that she mentioned, but nothing that would be enough to cause failure. I inspect often, as I do with the straps for the ring buckles anyway and could catch an eminent and imminent failure. They are still the most convenient suspension method that I have tried. The ring buckles are still very good also.

    I am still using the HH Tree Huggers with figure 8 lashing but I have a pair of the Hitchcraft Monsters and am considering switching to them.

    CC Buckles for me. I used the ring buckles for a while until I had a chance to actually tinker with the CC's, and I realized that they have all of the benefits and none of the drawbacks of the rings.

    Just switched to the Hitchcraft Mini's with the HH Tree Huggers and using the Figure 9's for the tarp.
    If you must choose between two evils, opt for the one you've never tried before

    Ring buckles for now, although I'm experimenting with the CC buckles, and I think I may switch over to them mostly. I really like the "feng shui" of the rings but the buckles work really well too, and seem to give less opportunity for the webbing to slide through.
