    Noob question

    Is there a sticky or thread or video that explains all the parts that people are talking about and what they do? The amount of info is amazing but I need to understand the basics before I can move on I think.

    The Ultimate Hang (link) is the new go to resource that every hanger, especially those just starting out, should have on hand. It's available in print and every major digital option as well. By far worth every cent.

    Huge plug for the Ultimate Hang book.

    There are many great videos posted here to watch too, but having the book reference is very handy!

    Look in the hammock articles section, there's one called Hammock Acronyms, it should help demystify some of the discussions.

    Another plug for the Ultimate Hang book. It will definitely put the jargon in context/perspective.

    I give both the "Ultimate Hang Book" (kindle version available for immediate download) and Shug's videos a +1.

    I understand your pain,lol. In this "sport" there is a huge amount of terminology to get familiar with, not to mention the acronyms. Don't worry, after about a few days it begins to come together. You can't go wrong with Shug's videos. Happy hanging.
