    I need help

    Im going to order some polypro webbing to replace my slapstraps. What width should I get? How much should I get for each side? I want to use the cinch buckle or the rings method. Where can I get the rings and what size do I need? Im new at this and all answers are much appreciated. Thanks!

    1" webbing will work, 12' for each side of the hammock is a good starting point. I like polyester much better than polypro. Are you sure you want cinch or ring buckles? All the cool kids are using whoopie slings now...

    I agree with the whoopie slings. I just converted from cinch buckles and biners, and I am not going back. In fact, thanks to Gargoyle, I have some dynaglide whoopies and they are amazing. I also have amsteel whoopies from Opie and I love them as well. I am thinking multiple applications for the concept when I canoe.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    I think the 2" OD, 1.5" ID SMC descending rings used to be pretty popular before the whoopie slings. IIRC, you have to tie a backup knot when using those. The cinch buckles don't need that.

    Do you know where I can find cinch buckles?
