    Do you have any idea what the strength rating is for the 7/64" ?

    APS has it rated at about 1600 lbs tensile strength.

    Thanks for the info, I'm a bit concerned about the small diameter line in a channel style hammock. I beef up the entrance to the channels with 400 denier spectra gridstop (similar to what Brian at OES uses for reinforcement on the MacCats). I'm sure this is more than enough but I'm giving this hammock to my niece. Any ideas ???

    I haven't had any issues in my DD, or my travel hammock. Plus, the Amsteel is a little slippery, so it doesn't "chafe" the fabric like other lines might.

    How is it for holding a knot?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    It's been seen that using a really small cord can cut into a tarp when using the gathered end method & attaching the cord to the hammock by a larks head.
    Soooooo. I would be cautious about using a very small cord in a hammock w/ channels on the ends. JMHO
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
