    I have both, and have found the opposite - once you learn how to place your fingers to hold the two flat triangles apart, they are MUCH easier to loosen than the round wire triangles. I switched to whoopie slings on my blackbird a year or two ago, and am actually thinking of buying more of the new flat buckles and switching back. It's a bit more bulk, but I do really like the "one piece" approach, where I never have to worry about whether my tree straps are big enough.

    i actually changed from whoopies to the strap and buckle system from brandon and like it better for a few reasons

    1. no tree straps to worry about, so that is one less thing to haul around and forget at camp

    2. i find the adjustment easier than with the whoopies

    3. the set up/take down time is quite a bit quicker which i really like

    4. i find i have a wider variety of tree distance's that i can use them with, both closer together and farther apart

    boot

    I just switched to a suspension from Dutchware with whoopie hooks . I like that the whoopies are attached to tree straps so I don't loose (forget) them, but I can unhook from hammock if straps are wet and pack them away from hammock. The original suspension was too bulky and too wet when it rained.

    I use the "all in one" from whoopieslings.com but the cinch buckle isn't bad you just have to separate the buckles. he does a video to show you on his site.
