    Welcome to the forums! As Paul said don't be bashful about asking questions. Somebody here will mostly likely have the answer to any question you can think of.

    What do you need to know. Webbing works, amsteel works, and I have not ripped thru a hammock. Mind how your set up is hung, no sharp objects in the hammock, stay away from nylon ropes and webbing (they stretch).

    If you got any specific questions feel free to ask.

    This brings up a question I should probably start a new thread about...BRB.

    Oh, and welcome TFC, from one (big) noob to another.
