    I'm using whoopies on my WWM, going through channel, so I don't think the extra 10" or so you mentioned at the end of your post is going to effect me?

    I could be wrong
    I think you're right. I've got continuous loops going through my channels. I thought about taking a whoopie through the channel, but I wanted to use Dutch Whoopie Hooks. I like the ability to disconnect the hammock and keep it separate from the suspension.

    I am currently testing shorter Dynaglide continuous loops through the channels. I started with a 21-inch length and 4-inch buries. I stitched the locked brummel. So far, three nights sleeping in it and I'm not on the ground.

    Sounds pretty awesome!

    Here's a random question you can probably answer.
    When I'm suspended in the hammock, my toggles turn almost Perpindicular to the ground.
    My whoopie stays around the knot, but is there something I'm doing wrong causing that?

    I've noticed the same thing with my GTS. I was concerned at first, but figured that it didnt matter which way the toggle spun as long as it was on the knot it wouldnt slip. I hope someone else give feed back on this because it would be nice to know if we should worry or not. I'm assuming we shouldnt, but my assumptions are at best worth a pile of cow pie most of the time.
    I am me and no one else can be me without my permission.

    Sorry for the stupid question. Again thanks for the fast responses.
    You using the included ridgeline? It's shorter than 11ft, I can measure mine when I get home.

    AHE's Sale has the Toxaways for 80 bucks.

    12' RL Full Hex Cat cut. Fits my WW like it was made for it. 14 oz.

    That may have something to do with formally using a tent rain fly for coverage, but these tarps are made with hammocks in mind.

    Structurally, it's fine, but I don't like when it does that. I'll spend five minutes fiddling with the tree strap or Marlin Spike Hitch just so the toggle stays parallel to the ground, and perfectly perpendicular to the hammock.

    I definitely prefer Dutch Buckles to toggles. They stay on the strap so you don't lose them, and there's a piece of shock cord to keep the whoopie from coming off the buckle.

    +1. Dutch Buckles are the way to go! At least for me they are.
