    HH Suspension Favorites

    Hey everyone.

    With my Hennessy on its was I thought I'd go ahead and start a thread asking what type of suspension everyone prefers to use on there Hennessy. Whether you like it stock, with whoopie slings, cinch buckles, etc. I'm just curious as I'm not sure how I want to run mine yet.

    Run it stock for a while. Then you can figure out what you need to change and what works just like it is.

    I run mine stock except I changed out the tree straps for an Atlas strap. I also tie mine with a figure eight on the bight hooked to a carabineer. It makes set up a bit quicker.

    Went to carabiner and rappel rings pretty soon after I got mine. Still use the lashing on stock lines for the kids. I needed quicker setup since I use mine constantly.

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    There are Crock Pots and there are Microwaves. The world does microwaves; God does crock pots.

    I used the stock set up for a few months then switched to whoopies. I really found the whoopies much better and easier. It is a very individual thing with suspension systems.
    Take care,

    I use woopies with dutchware. Love the easy adjustability and how fast setup is.

    I put whoopies on my Expedition. However, I might go back and put continuous loops on them so I can use Dutch whoopie hooks. That way I don't have to pack wet whoopies up with the hammock.

    I used the stock suspension for a few months, then switched over to 'biners and rings, and used that for a few months.

    Then I went to whoopie slings, and my last 'mod' was to replace the toggles in the MSH with weight bearing 'biners, and I simply attach the whoopie sling to the 'biner directly. No risk of the loop coming up 'over the not and toggle' that way.

    I've used that last suspension for over a year now, and will probably stay that way.

    This is what I ended up doing. I had too much difficulty with Hennessey's stock suspension. I reallly like my whoopie sling (that I made) with my very strong biner.

    If you're a bit hesitant to take the Hennessy's suspension apart to put whoopies on, there's a couple of things that I've used that work well. First is the descender rings already mentioned, and second is the "Lock N' Load" cinch buckle set up that White Mountain has. Look under "Gear & Equipment Hangers" at his website here. I've just run the Hennessy rope through the loop on the Lock N/ Load, then run tree straps through the cinch buckle end (you can get those from Gary, too).

    With both setups, remember to tie a double slip knot after the rings or buckles or you'll end up on your butt.

    Ask me how I know.
