    Ahhh thanks. Gosh.

    More videos are coming. I'll make sure I capture another one of me doing both ends, but basically, I did both ends exactly the same. I've been traveling and unable to put some new ones together. But after this next week, I'll get back to it!

    Question about amsteel conection with fixed eye at both ends

    I am using a foot long piece of amsteel with locked brummel splices at both ands rahter than a continuous loop as the attachment points on my hammock.
    Should I Have any strencgth concerns? Is it better to use a continuous loop?

    for clarification I have an ENO with the double eye through the channel. Then one eye through the other and pulled tight .

    thank guys

    You mean something like this?


    I've used this for attachments with descending rings.

    Splicing newbie question.

    The final two pictures in the original post aren't showing up for me. The last one is with the bury squished up and the tail sticking out just a little. I assume that pulling the whole thing taut will suck the tail inside the bury?

    Is anything else needed to ensure everything is yar and won't slip over time?
