    Warbonnet tree strap question

    I ordered my blackbird with the line strap suspension and recently converted to whoopies. I was wondering if it would be suitable to use the tree straps that came with it. They're about 5ft long or so and have a metal triangle in the end.

    They should work fine but I doubt you'll need the metal triangle for hanging with whoopies. Are you planning to use a toggle and marlin spike hitch?

    There's no huge advantage but you could use the triangle and feed the other end of the webbing through it if you weren't planning on using a biner. At the very least there would no webbing to webbing friction vs feeding webbing through a sewn loop. Removing the stitching holding the triangle would gain some webbing length.

    Is the webbing to webbing friction a huge concern?

    No. Frankly, I'm more concerned with webbing to metal wear.

    I guess that's why we say HYOH. Each of us seems to have our own concerns that don't bother others.

    Yes, you could definitely use them. I take mine completely off my WBBB when using my tablecloth hammock with whoopies.

    Those triangle things detach from the webbing altogether. Just slip the webbing all the way through.

    I use the straps that came with my WBBB line strap suspension with woopies and they work just fine. I loop the triangle end through the sown loop and put a toggle in with a marlin spike hitch. It works great. I'll probably make longer tree straps soon but there's definitely no problem with this setup.

    It's not a concern of mine but I've read some don't like it. As gmcttr said HYOH.
