    I took the snap hooks off yesterday when I put in the ring buckles. I contemplated throwing them out, thinking they're too heavy to use for anything really. I wound up chucking them in my tool box, you never know what they may come in handy for around the house.

    Peanuts, if you do go for the spyderline, get the 3.8mm, which is rated to 1900#, I think. When you take out the old stock line in your ENO, be very careful to notice how the stock line is run and tied. The best thing to do with the spyderline is run and tie it in the same fashion that your stock line is. Take pics, compare one against the other as you go or whatever you have to do to get the spyderline in and the rings attached safely. Of course, another option is to cut out the stock line, whip the ends of the hammock and install the spyderline like that. Just do what works for you.

    On my 2nd night with my ring buckle supports, I was so excited about my new MacCat Deluxe, that I forgot to tie half hitches in the ends of the webbing next to the rings. That night, when I was arranging my pad underneath me, I hopped up to put it under me, and the webbing just slipped right through the rings! Luckily my pad was under me, and I was just fine, but that is going to remind me to always double-check my set up before I go to sleep!

    Just to clarify, I love the ring buckle supports, and I reccomend them to everyone. Hassle-Free set up, and easy take down.

    And thats exactly why I hesitate to use them. Unless the are just perfectly in place, you wind up on your butt!

    Cleats bend, ring buckles slip. Is there any perfect solution?!?!?!

    Perfect? No. Pretty close? CC Buckles.

    I really am starting to like the CC buckles, I got to test them last night:



    No half-hitch necessary, and just as easy as rings.

    Has anyone tried clams? Similar to the ones you see on roof rack or NRS straps. I am thinking that would be the easiest if they would be strong enough to hold.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    I looked at some, but all the ones that I found and were strong enough were heavier than buckles.
