    longer straps?

    So Im looking for some longer tree straps for my Blackbird with the line/strap suspension. I live in washington and the 5 ft straps are not making it around many trees. Ive only set it up a couple of times but it took me forever to find two trees that the straps would fit around. Maybe looking for some 7 footers if anyone has some or knows a good place to get the straps to make. Or could i ask warbonnet to make me some, is that possible?

    Had the same problem. I asked Warbonnet, and they supplied me with longer straps. If I were you, I would contact Warbonnet and ask.

    Avoid nylon due to its stretch. Stick with polyester. Call Brandon or buy from some from vendors here like Arrowhead Equipment, Dutchware etc.

    I got some in camo from Dutch, it was cheap. 30' length so I can make whatever size I want and just tie a loop in the end.

    I'd recommend going with at least 1" polyester straps for hanging.

    Same here! I have a set of those yellow ones, and two set of 6 footers from Wally World.

    I'm all for supporting the vendors here, but if you have a road block of sorts, there's always amazon.
