    Speer uses polypro webbing. Polyester is stronger than polypro. You can get some 1" polyester either from some Harbor Freight tie-down straps, or by ordering from StrapWorks. The StrapWorks webbing is thicker/heavier than that from Harbor Freight, but they will do custom sewing to fit your need.

    here is some one inch polypro webbing with a rated tensile strength of 800 lbs against speer's 700 lbs. I guess this might equate to 260 lbs in the hammock v. speer's 250?

    i weigh around 230 lbs, and i am heavily considering going with some 1 inch speer webbing for my ENO. speer's is much cheaper and he will sew your loops in... does this sound rational?

    I just ordered two more sets from Ed to be picked up at the Hang-Out. I now have 3 hammocks, and enough rings for all three. It is easy enough to swap out the webbing between them, but I got more so I don't have to wonder which hammock it's on.

    I took my hammocks to a friend's place. She is more normal sized (I weigh about 110lbs) and I was amazed that the setup I did for myself acted so different when she got in. The ring actually slipped. She had tied that end, and I don't think she realized exactly what I meant. She did after she (softly) slid to the ground. It hadn't budged with me in the hammock. I was also amazed at how the two hammocks fit her differently. I didn't have my Treklight double at that time. Both my other hammocks are short.

    Anyway, I like the webbing I got from Ed, and he's easy to deal with.

    Speer webbing would probably be o.k at your weight. I use it and am happy but I weigh much less. If I weighed 230lbs., I'd probably go with Strapworks. They will sew the loops also for a small charge. I was told by them to call and place the order if I wanted loops sewn.The fact that polyester stretches less is a big plus also. I'm still deciding if I want some. Extra weight but less stretch. Hum....

    i guess i could always go w/ ENO's slap strap pros, but they are nylon. does nylon really stretch that much?

    Yes, it stretches far too much.

    I haven't tried those, but I have considered them. I don't see how they would be a substantial improvement over a cinch buckle, though.


    I was thinking of the irregularly shaped ones that you twist with your thumb and forefinger to loosen. This would fix the problem some are having with difficulty loosening their buckles when cinched tight. It doesn't appear Onrope1 sells the type I'm referring too either. Any climbers know the buckles I'm referring to?

    well, i have the regular slap straps, and i have used them with satisfaction. honestly, i havent noticed a significant amount of stretch after an overnighter in the hammock. not to say they dont have some give, and you probably will sag a bit over night, but its not terrible.
