    Along with reverting back to the figure 9, Im going to be incorporating the Nite Ize Knot Bone into the other end. Replacing the toggle.

    This would also allow one to create the "V" in their TRL that dejoha illustrated.

    Pics will come this weekend.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    Opie,

    Just curious if there is an locked brummel eye on at least one end of the current configuration? I like to do a toggle on one end and the Figure 9 on the other. Let me know and I will order one up! You cost is about as cheap as me ordering 50 feet of Amsteel so it makes sense!

    Cheers,
    Bleemus

    Yes, I sleep in a hammock. Please pass the Grey Poupon.

    Cheers,
    The old style is that way... Fixed eye and toggle on one end and a figure 9 on a prusik loop on the other.

    Is there any danger of wear on the line over time from the teeth of the Figure-9?
    It's been known to happen with regular rope but maybe you're not using the Figure-9 in the same place of the line each time out.

    Yes its possible. I havent noticed any were on mine and havent heard from any of my customers about wear. It could be that you arent using the exact same spot on the line each time. It could also be the nature of the line itself to withstand the abrasion better then nylon of polyester line.
