I hope I'm making sense, just interested in what others have experienced.

    Thanks to everyone for their valuable input.
    No reason you can't do that method with a MSH instead of lark's heading onto the tree strap, provided the fixed eye is big enough.

    That makes perfect sense, now why didn't I think of that.

    Thanks, that looks like the setup for me.

    Dutch's whoopie is one of the most versitile suspension methods. It uses both for hanging. So you can use a whoopie when trees are far apart and a continuous loop when they are close. It is also super light I dont know of the weight though. All I know is that I reduced my weight and bulk of hammock and suspension by half.
