    I am playing around with using 1 40' piece of webbing for my straps. I am going to tie loop in it and hang the hammock of the loops. That will give me a about 16' of webbing on each side of the hammock. The downside is it is going to weigh more than a simple ridgeline.
    don`t forget to take into account that the knots may reduce the strength of the webbing... according to how you do it. ...tim

    Right. I wonder how much a knot weakens it vs sewing thru it. The webbing as something like a 4000 lbs breakage strength. I'm not too worried about the stuff I am using.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    40' weigh 16.6 oz, the same length of webbing from Ed Speer's site would only weigh 8.3 oz. Looking at it that way I will probibly order some from him and switch it out. I was just did not want to wait shipping. I got it from the local outfitter. It was in the climbing section.
