Guess that makes sense because the fabric is really under stress in the same part of the hammock width all along the length, that is in the middle of the hammock and not the outer edge.
The larkshead tightens down so well when you first load it that there isn't any sliding of the line back and forth in the channel so I doubt you'd need to worry much about any term sawing action compromising the fabric.
Thanks for the pix. The test hang went well. See Here
