    umm wow.! That is overkill. Certainly no need to use the new "BIG" fig -9's at nearly 5oz each. The 'large' fig 9's we referred to earlier in testing are what they are now calling the 'medium' size.

    At 10 ounces for 2 I think I would just stick to knots. You have so many bettter options available to you.

    Yeah, you might be right about overkill with the Big one.
    What did you end up with in tests of the Large (medium) ?
    I think i will try the Large one.

    I got my 2 Large Figure 9:s a couple of days ago!
    And tried them out yesterday.

    I have a Clark NA and still have the original rope on.
    Its some kind of nylon version of a manilla rope.

    Jesus, the Figure 9:s really bite hard into that rope,
    so good in fact that the rope wont last 3 times in same spot.
    And i needed help to get rope loose from the 9.


    So, i either i change my rope on the hammock to a spectra kind with a sheet.
    or change to webbing and use rings.

    HITCH CRAFT rope tighteners

    Try these in the larger size: http://www.hitchcraft.net/buy.html I use them on my CLARK (with the slippery rope...?) and it holds perfectly. I also find that the rope is not damaged or frayed in any way in the 'jam' clamp. It also 'lets go' easily. The units are made out of a very lightweight, but tough nylon. It is NOT flexible, and is about 4.5" long. Works great for me..... I HATE that bowline hassle, and the CLARK rope is a bit too inflexible, springy, and thick for a Hennessy style lashing. The diameter of CLARKS rope is just PERFECT for these units. Hope this helps. RON

    I found the 9's nicked the HH BPkr lines (about 3 - 4 mm) even tho sanded some but worked well with the larger line on the HH Expdn.

    So I continue to use knots on light biners on huggers.

    riverkeeper, that's what I was worried about. I saw these at Harbor Freight and wondered if they'd chew up the line on my HH. Might pick up a couple of the small ones, though, for odds & ends usage around the camp site. Found them for a great price online.

    ETA: Just had a thought. What if you had a short replaceable piece of rope that you put on your stock HH rope with a sheet bend or similar knot? Then if the other rope got chewed up you could just replace it.

    The small figure 9's are great for tarp tie-outs.

    I sanded the teeth completely off of my large fig 9's. They work great.
