    Nope not the ring buckle setup. Now that I think about it was a post on another site.

    I want to keep my spectra and only use webbing for around the tree.
    My main concern is not having the spectra running through the tree huggers.


    I will go check up on Figure 9 thread. The small Figure 9s are awesome for my tarp.

    Running your spectra through biners will alleviate wear and tear on the loops. Or you could give the top of the loops a wrap of duct tape.

    I have some extra tree huggers I recycled from some expired child car seats. They are seat belt material, about 36" long, and have the loops already sewn in. Might hold up better if you don't mind the extra weight. I can bring them to MAHAA if you want them.

    Funny you should mention biners. I recently bought a few Black Diamond Hotwires. I plan on trying them at MAHAA.

    Thanks for the offer but I just remembered that I have an extra set of tree huggers I ordered with my hammock since all the trees where I used to live were huge!

Ed Speer sells the majority favored polyester 1" webbing and ships very quickly in my experience although ordering through his site is kind of a pain unless you go through Paypal. Most on this forum use between 10 - 15 feet of webbing on each end depending on your personal preference. I started with 15 feet then cut it down to 12 feet as I found 15 feet to be uneccessarily long for me. There's lots of great info on this forum on this topic if you do a quick search.
    Speer webbing is polypropylene not polyester. It works well but I switched to polyester recently.
