Same old Question
This has been ask a million times I am sure, but I will ask it again. If I wanted to use my stock rope on my HH deep Jungle XL, what would be the best way to hang it with out tying a knot each time? I don't want to do the whoopie slings yet so is there a way to do it? P.S. tried figure 9's and they degrade my rope to quick.

In reality using a rope suspension with out using knots in order to adjust the length of the suspension as needed becomes a tough proposition.
Well, if you don't want to use the HH lashing, you could try:

Also, these worked great for me for the few times I used them( I used the lighter weight nylon version)
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

Glad to hear that you abandoned the Figure 9s
for suspension. I hope the rope sheath did not become too frayed, because if you try the Gaarda hitch and the frayed sections are within the area around the descending rings you might experience rupture to the sheath.
My advice, in no particular order is:
*convert to whoopies,
*convert to cinch buckles and web straps, or
*grumble under your breath and keep tieing the HH hitch.
Personal history: HH Hitch>>>>whoopies>>>>>>cinch buckles & straps
if there is some way to connect your hammock to one of the amsteel loops from AHE- doesn't have to be a whoopie- or perhaps a nano carabiner? ;you could get by with just a marlinspike hitch on your tree huggers (ala Shug) or! sew places into the strap itself, either loops or doubled back on itself then tacked down at intervals. put in toggle and drop the loop over it..or just clip biner to webbing all done!
just a few morning thoughts, HTH, KM (who is watching the snow fall- with some amazement)
