    Can you point me towards Griz' no hardware setup? I would like to hear more.

    edit: Ahh, it appears Grizz is Professorhammock. I believe I found it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sUfGqudl_8

    I'd cut it in half and take one half and cut it in half again. That will give you enough for two 6 foot whoopie slings with some left for future projects.

    I agree with you on the red. More often than not, it is pink. Wish Samson Rope would correct that.

    Great video by Grizz. I just haven't got any skill at making diamond knots, so I avoid them.
