    Spindrift shockcord

    Small request, I have the no-net RR and got a Spindrift. Now I need to make my own shockcords that hold up the spindrift since the no-net doesnt come with them. Would anyone mind describing how they are setup or taking a couple pics?
    Thanks for the help

    The net uses 3/32" shock cord. Start with a 6' piece for the head end and a 30" piece for the foot end.

    Route them through a cord lock/through the net loop/back through the cord lock. Tie a mitten hook on the other end.

    For the net, the head end is tied to the tree higher than the tree strap and the foot end is clipped to the amsteel cinch buckle loop. I assume the Spindrift works the same but haven't set mine up yet.

    I kind of think the spindrift should be sold with the shock cord included. For those that have net less RR and because it makes it much easier not to have to swap them out every time.
