    The cool factor in high tech is so fleeting
    I'm feeling so 2009 right now.
    It turns out I'm beta in a dvd world.
    Like some door to door typewriter repairman.
    The ugly girl at a high school dance.
    Billy Joel on New Years Day 1990.
    Or the old frail horse that worked his life away to plow the fields, but has been put out to pasture.
    Some overweight aging disco dude rollerskating alone on Hollywood Bvd.
    Cannibal's discarded ULBA.
    Jan from the Brady bunch.
    Pop rocks
    Billy Joel after Christie Brinkley left him.
    Leftover meatloaf forgotten in the back of the refrigerator.
    The mullet.

    I don't wanna be a mullet.

    Pardon me for not replying sooner; I was hoping one of the rope experts would have chimed in.

    IMHO, the answer is 'yes and no'. On the yes side, just thinking about the physics of what happens when you bend a rope, I believe putting any rope through a tight bend will derate the rope. In fact, I suspect that's why knots weaken a rope. On the 'no' side, the 7/64 and larger HMPE lines we're using are so strong that even with the derating we aren't pushing the limit in most hammock suspension applications.

    If I've got this wrong, I'm ready to be reeducated correctly.

    That hurts, we're all hammockers here you know.
    Actually if I never make another Dutch clip it will be to soon for me. Long live the Nacrabiner.

    Dutch clip time machine? Maybe you could patent the structural ridgeline if you went back in time? Sorry, OT. Over.

    I'll use my DCs but I'm NOT listening to Billy Joel or growing a mullet.
