    Thank te-wa for the important safety tip - "its like every molecule in your body exploding at the same time!"

    I have plenty of alum arrows. Now just to get some amsteel & whoopies

    Would dynaglide whoopies to the hammock be ok with this setup? since I'm 115lbs with my trail sneakers on...

    Bump. This is exactly, what I'm wanting to know.
    "The Road goes ever on and on,
    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can.
    Pursuing it with eager feet
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say."

    Str1der, these weights are from a WBBB that I have that had the line strap suspension.

    tree straps ~5' with tri-rings - 85 grams
    line - 24 grams

    That's pretty light. If light weight is your primary goal, then separate whoopie slings and huggers is lighter than the All In One system. 6' tree huggers are 88 grams and 6' 7/64" whoopie slings are 40 grams.

    Hope that helps.
