    POLL: What type of suspension do you tie to trees with?

    Alright all you hangers...I'm trying to get an idea of how many people use certain types of suspension systems, and I hope I've got the major options. If I've missed something major, please post a message and inform all of us. Thanks!

    Hey, did I miss anything major? Is there a system I totally didn't include? I'm still learning about them and am trying to figure out if I want to convert to some sort of strap.

    I use the HH tree huggers which are really no problem to use but I would really like to use something a little easier and quicker. I've read about the other options but dont know yet. Would not want to add much additional weight.

    That's exactly where I'm at in the decision process too. It's not that tying the HH spectra to the tree huggers is "that" hard, but I keep thinking about how much easier it would be to just wrap a strap and be done w/it. I also think about somehow losing a little tree hugger versus never losing a strap if somehow attached by a biner or something. Just don't know......

    I am all about the 4 wrap knot. Although I would be open to easier 1 piece methods.

    I just use flat straps with the tried and true double half hitch as shown here:

    I use the stock tree huggers but have been looking real hard at the slap straps. I am thinking slap straps with biners. Prolly will buy a set and give am a try.
