Better than trying to guess.
    Good trick. I will try that on my next one.

    I can't find anyone that's my size! At 6'4" and 210 lbs it's a little weird to hang out on the basketball court and say "Hey buddy, you got a sec?"

    Have you guys tried rolling in the sides a little then a W gather?
    What exactly is a Warbonnet whip? (can't seem to find this on site)

    The Warbonnet whip is when you run a small string through the very small seam at the end... Then fold it over itself a little and then tie the string off... It makes a knot at the end of the hammock that keeps the suspension from sliding off... I hope that makes sense...

    Ok, the end hem would have a small line of some kind run through it, then gathered up, creating a kind of rounded end, which is then whipped? I get it. I wonder if rolling then whipping would create the same kind of result?

    I'm thinking of setting a loop in one end of the whipping line, then laying that up to the end (across where the end will be whipped), then making a W gather, bringing the whipping down towards the lay area and tying it off.

    This would give me a handy little loop inside for clipping on gear or a ridgeline or whatever. Does it sound like it would work?

    Re: Table Cloth Hammock whipping

    It would probably work... Am easier solution and a more common one... Is to have a continuous loop of amsteel larksheaded onto the Hammock body... And then clip your suspension into that... To me this offers another good advantage... In a place where trees aren't wide enough you can hang that continuous directly on your toggle... Giving you a very very short setup...

    But hey try it your way, take some pics and let us know, you never know who will come up with the next cool trick...
