    Whoopies and tree straps with a marlin spike hitch make a better option.

    Try the loop straps from NRS, take the end with the sewn loop and leave the part with the buckle at home! http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.a...4&pdeptid=1188 polypro, so no stretch, even when wet
    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

    I used them for a while. Recently, I moved to polyester starps with 2" loops on each end from Simply Light. They are a few ounces less in weight and function just as well.

    I never would have known there were strap specialists! But now that I do, I may just use them whenever I need knew straps!
