    The Jacks will be selling these for me. However they are out till the end of the month. Right now I only have prototypes like Hawk-eye's and will have to build stock before they can offer it. I have been waiting for some feedback, but I think it is time to start cutting. Until they get in the Jacks hands I am going to put 10 sets for sale in a day or 2. They will be for donating members only and any profit generated will go to my charity-Meals on Wheels.

    They weigh 9.8 grams and will lift 1000 pounds straight up. They can reduce you total suspension weight if you use a shorter hugger than you would with the marlin spike hitch. For example many use 6' huggers and I use 3' with the Biners. They can't slip off when adjusting like a toggle can. If the biner is close to the hammock you can detach everything that is wet and store it separately so you keep you hammock dryer.

    Hawk-eyes video was awesome. This was the first time I got to see it.
    Peace Dutch

    Very Nice, Hawk-eye! My wife kept coming over wanting to watch the video and then wanted me to explain - when I told her it was another hammock-hanging innovation she just rolled her eyes, sighed, snickered, and walked away again!
    Hiking & Hanging is therapy, and much cheaper than medication in the long run. Carry on.

    After testing them out this weekend for 2 nights i can tell you they make setup and take down alot faster....
    and like dutch said you will save weight on straps as well...i'm using a 4 foot strap with a 12 inch continuous loop at the end...then the Dutch biner
    and i have 4 foot whoopie slings on my WBBB .... so i also saved alittle weight with the shorter WS

    this setup saves me the weight of 4 feet of webbing and 4 feet of amsteel and 2 toggles...cutting my weight by 2.4oz

    also there is no need for a Marlin Spike Hitch....
    so for the ppl that don't care to learn a new knot...this is the right setup for you
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    Yep, I think you can safely say that it's time to start cutting. Cut lots of them, these things look very, very cool and I can't wait to get some to try out.

    Just out of curiosity, since I can't quite tell from the video ... How are you attaching your whoopies to your straps/huggers when you reverse them like that? I'm sure I could come up with a handful of ways I would do it, just wondering how YOU did it. :-)
