    Which one?

    what do you suggest for webbing suspension? i numbered them cause i don't know their names.

    For webbing, I would stick with number 2. That is what was on my WBBB and is now installed on my DIY hammock for my daughter. Very simple, very easy to use, very reliable!

    To me, 1,2 and 4 are basically the same system. The components are different shapes, but they all consist of a piece the hammock is lark's headed on to, and a piece that slides on the webbing. The interlacing of the webbing through both pieces keeps the position. Number 3 is the only different system, accomplishing the same thing in a one-piece affair with a moveable bar.

    That being said, I'd break out the old digital scale and pick the lightest one! They're all easy to use and reliable systems! That's just my two cents... .

    I have 2 and 4. As Pips says, basically the same...but
    2 is nice as no back-up knot is needed but harder for me to finely tune
    4 adjusts much easier for me but requires a back-up knot

    ever try a single ring with a girth hitch? I used that for a few years when I was using a strap system. fairly easy to adjust by loosening the girth hitch then shorten/lengthen the free side of the hitch
