    quick dn question, and an odd one...

    ok, first up for the easy one (ha).

    im going to upgrade the suspension on this thing as i can, and i was thinking about getting the warbonnet set of binners http://warbonnetoutdoors.com/images/IMG_3649.JPG to replace the cord AND binners that are stock on the hammock.

    would these be a good choice for the money, or should i do something else? suggestions? not concerned about weight really, just functionality and having less stuff to fail. ive not got many tools (or patience) to do a lot of diy stuff just yet, so i will eventually move up to a whole other setup to ditch the crap straps.



    second thing, the odd question. when i hang, i usually end up with a headache and feeling like i have low blood sugar (not diabetic, but i know the feeling of it, shakey and all). am i just laying wrong or something? im not yet able to lay in a straight line, even diagonally. i usually have to have a leg cocked up or something. maybe just the way ive got it setup, but hell if i know. if it matters at all im 6ft and 275ish

    just not a big fan of that feeling. or getting a headache everytime...

    thanks guys.

    i would go for the whoopie sling with a marlin spike hitch and get a set of poly straps from strapworks and you dont need the biner unless you just want it for easyer set up and tear down its a easy set up and really easy to adjust so you can find your flat lay without having to readjust your straps

    check out this link on Knotty's method of making a gathered end hammock - within the instructions are directions for a warbonnet style end. That's what I'm going to do with my DN then add whoopie slings and connect to straps via marlin hitch.

    See article entitled, "The Camping Headache":

    See that makes a ton of sense. I'm one of a handful of documented cases of caffeine addiction and basically always have a dew with me. Been working on lightening the load as it were, so ill try this!

    if you can tie your shoes, you should be able to make some whoopie slings.. Ill admit at first they seemed confusing, but you will chuckle to your self once your done makeing the first one. The second one is even easier...Start to finsh (including installing them on my hammocks) is less then 10 mins
