    WB Traveler suspension swap

    So I got my Traveler, and got to work. I swapped the stock suspension for whoopies and an adjustable ridgeline.

    I am going to build a hammock stand so I can get out of the basement and get better light for taking pictures.





    The slings are 4'. The ridgeline is 16' of Zing It. I put a 2" fixed eye on one end. The adjustable bury loop exits the main line around 86". Adjustment up to, I think 120". I realize its a wide range of adjustment. But once you get it dialed in closer to where you will keep it, You can trim the tail.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    I slept in this set-up last night. The Zing It held up fine and the bury didnt slip at all.

    Adjustments were simple, and I made many.
