    Not worried about skeeters, I don't sleep naked. Lay is just as good, noticeably more sag though. At my weight I should have been at a single all along.

    Line weight mis-info?

    2.2mm ziingit = 0.16 lbs/100ft

    go figure - well i didn't do the math but it probably is not worth switching over to the dynaglide instead of the 1.75 zingit for the ridgeline

    just thought ya might like to know,

    So about these specs... they are just specs

    i just placed about ten ft. of each 1.75 zing it and 2mm dynagl. on the scale and it seems that the zing it is lighter! big surprise there!

    My scale is only accurate to about 1/8 an oz. so it's hard to tell w/ a smaller quantity, but i wouldn't doubt for a second that some designer or publisher messed up the specs on one or the other... another surprise... Oh well you'd think i'd be used to it by now So i'm not sure about these specs; anyone out there have any hard data?

    Hey ikemouser,

    Did you do an adjustable ridgeline on your BB or go fixed at 100"?

    Also did you make the RL w/ a quick disconnect? Meaning: do you find the RL to be in your way when sitting?

    oops,
    kirk

    Yeah - exactly!!

    I'm hangin on 2mm /5/64th Dynamic line. I weighed it at 6g/ m- My 2.5mm Marlow d12 weighs 3.9g/m.

    The only difference between them that I'm aware of is the 2mm line is pre-stretched and has a coloured polyurethane coating-they are both SK75 fibres.

    I spoke to the factory about it, and they told me the 2mm line starts life at over 3mm, before being stretched-this could be the same for the Amsteel braid too.

    ok - i just measured two identical lengths of 1.75mm zingit and 2mm dynaglide. Each being about 2 fathoms long...

    the 1.75 zing it came up to about 5 grams and the dynagl. weighs 8 grams.

    Or between 1/8 and 1/4 oz. for the zingit and between 1/4 and 3/8 oz. for the dynaglide.

    Clearly the 1.75 zing it is the lighter of the two.

    the coating and prestretching can certainly make a difference but in these two lines it appears that the smaller line is lighter. So the specs may be incorrect! oh no!

    but anyway...

    ... both of these lines have a coating. I do not know if either of them are prestretched???

    Dynaglide is prestretched, zing it is not.

    Zing It has the same Samthane coating Amsteel Blue does. Dynaglide has more of a vinyl (urethane) coating.

    While the Dynaglide coating does make it slide over objects easier, it makes it stick to itself pretty well. Configured in a sling, it locks very well.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    This discussion was very interesting, but now that ya'll have had years to test out these cords how do the two different coatings hold up to abrasion? Dyna Glide's urethane vs Dyneema's proprietary coating (i'm guessing urethane with something else, teflon? jk).

    Perhaps i should just start another thread, but dread the "What? you'll fall and crack your hip", Harm to tree bark: mommy says use webbing, and long rants about history/tech specs of both companies and also that German one: Liros D-Pro... Please. Just real world experience about abrasion on the 2 cord coating technologies. These are my paranoia's of starting a new thread, but you guys are cool.

    Dynaglide is made out of dyneema but NER and Samson do use different coatings on their product, both seem to have similar performance. Similar enough to be negligible.I believe abrasion the OP was concerned about was the dynaglide on the hammock and since there is virtually no relative movement between the two when under load the hammocks tend to show no adverse affects from the dynaglide. I also believe the OP is still using straps on the tree just has dynaglide whoopies, having switched from the stock strap only system of the BB to a strap and whoopie system.
    Good luck,

    holy dynamite! that's an extremely light hammock! lighter that any one that I've heard of. Did you keep the bug netting on it?
