    Suspension

    I was wondering how much trouble it would take (if any) to mod my eno DN to a whoopie sling suspension. Any help will be appreciated.

    much love

    Super easy. Cut off the stock suspension, feed the fixed eye loop of the whoopie sling through the end channel and then feed the adjustable end through the fixed eye loop. The channels are plenty strong to hold the amsteel so no worries. This is what I do to my hammocks that have end channels and this is a popular change people do to the ENO.

    Your welcome. Don't trust anything that is not climbing rated or at least have a rating of 1000lbs or so. There are some small climbing carabiners available at REI or stores that sell climbing gear.

    thats funny haha. but yea its pretty easy to change it out and it makes your eno alot more versatile. I got my climbinb biners from sunrift adventures in travelers rest. I dont know how far you live from there but thats just where I got mine.

    easy as anything. mines got em, and i love it. $6 for a good set of biners. black diamond are what i use.

    if they say not for climbing, theyll hold about 6 keys before letting go.

    Super easy to switch out the suspension. As soon as I had my whoopie slings made, off came the stock stuff. Those crazy heavy (and sharp) carabiners were goners as well. Picked up some decent ones at Gander Mt. because I didn't want to wait for shipping.
