I tried whipping in just about every way I could find when i did my first DIY, but in the end, nothing I did was as comfortable as when I got frustrated and sewed in the end channel. Now, i just put a little loop through it and attached it to some whoopie slings, and it's just about perfect IMPO. And as for strength, I'm 6'3" about 350, and it holds me with no problem.
thanks guys great help.I went with the channel. For the suspension does using 2 decending rings work well as adjusters, could i do this using webbing
Webbing or rope works fine with rings, just remember to back it up with a slippery half hitch against the rings or they will slip.
I like to use a channel to gather the ends of my hammocks, but I still whip them because I don't trust my sewing yet.
