    .....Mechanical humming from below stops.....Stormcrow stomps loudly up the basement stairs....stumbles hesitantly into the bright sunlight....ahhhh, it burns! Quickly retreats back into the abyss......Mechanical humming resumes....

    I can change your suspension out for you Cuffs. If you have already picked out what you want to use that is LOL.

    I recommend Opies Whoopie slings as probably the lightest ones available . AHE makes good ones too.

    If you trust your *** to dynaglide slings that is probably the lightest of all routes.
    NO SNIVELING!

    As for the suspensions... yea, I dont want to read 6 bazillion posts to find the easiest/lightest/least bulky...

    Whats the better option for suspension for a HH? As for the tinkering and DIY... yea, Id rather just have someone do it for me while I go play with my table saw and riding mower...
    When I first started out this venture, I offered to do the suspension swaps at no extra charge above the cost of the goods. The cost of getting your hammock to me would be yours, but thats it.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    Order some whoopie slings and I'll stop by the store and put them on your HH.

    They are definitely the lightest way to go.
