    Way to go Griz. Love the out take at the end.

    To me it seems the tri-glide system would be the most difficult to adjust.

    Superb video Grizz. Can't wait to see the next one.

    I didn’t recognize you without a bridge. Great video, but I need the type that uses bloodwood dowels.

    Very nice easy to understand video. Now I know I want to stay away from Tri Glides. It also never dawned on me that you could roll back the end of a channeled hammock to attach your lines. I do trust my stitching in my Claytor but I did find it informative.

    Great addition to the forums. Wish I had this video when I was first changing out suspensions. You make it so simple.

    I giggled when you slipped to the ground...
    I plan on having the next one include using a garda hitch on a stock HH, and figured to make this very point in that segment. You laugh at my misfortune

    The only downside is, after reading the earlier replies, I was anxiously waiting to see you wide-eyed as you were rapidly flung earthward but, alas, you didn't skip a beat as you slowly sunk down!
    Thanks. I was able to borrow a wireless mic from work, and that helped with the sound a lot. But....you wished to laugh at my misfortune ?

    I must have told my better half they were $9...that's the figure that's stuck in my head. $9 or $16, a great deal on a basic but very functional hammock. Or two.

    Now if you and Mr. Shug could hook up what a hoot that would be
    I've been planning to make this for a while, but when the BB recently got reviewed on BackpackGearTest.com and the reviewer didn't really know what to do with the webbing set-up, I knew I had to get this done.

    I would dearly like to log some miles and shoot some vid with Shug. Had hoped to pull that off with the Northern Hang in a couple of weeks but I had to back out of that gig.

    Ha! Now that's funny. I didn't even notice. I use probability a lot in what I do, and I've read measure theory enough to pick up the lingo. In real life I'm been caught saying that something will happen "with probability 1" and I get funny looks. Almost surely.

    To me it seems the tri-glide system would be the most difficult to adjust.
    If the hammock is hanging loose, its all about the same to me, rings, buckle, or triglide, with the exception that you can tighten a ring set-up with one hand. The larger difference is setting up and taking down, and in my book that difference is not significant enough to come down hard on one device or the other. There is a difference in weight, 45 grams for a full set of rings, 56 grams for a pair of cinch buckles, 22 grams for a pair of triglides. But to really save weigh I go to cord....stay tuned....

    All this is predicated on the assumption that the hammock is hanging loose. I don't think you can easy crank up the tension using the triglides, and that actually is a good thing.

    Patience, grasshopper. All will be revealed in the fullness of time.

    That particular technique is one I learned from Warbonnetguy. All his hammocks do that.

    Everyone else...thanks for the appreciation. The vids are labors of love, but we like it when others like 'em too.

    The difficulty I see with the tri glides is that to take up or let out slack, you have to deal with the webbing rotating around the tree and any binding that may result. Still a nice system, especially for gram weenies.
