Eno DN whoopie question
I just put whoopies on my DN. I didn't double loop it the through the channel. Will it be ok single looped? I'm 220lbs

Re: Eno DN whoopie question
Yes, you should be fine just going through once. I'm not really sure why ENO puts the rope through twice. I did put my whoopies through my tablecloth channels twice, but I'm getting ready to replace them with loops and I'll only run those through once. I have made hammocks for guys much heavier than you and only put loops through a single time. They held just fine.

I only went through my eno once with my whoopies. I can't see how it would make a difference in strength, and only a very minor difference in the way the hammock lays.

Same difference either way. I rarely double loop.

I only double looped because that's what Stu did in his video over on whoopieslings.com
Can't imagine it makes much of a difference but it is easy to change if you feel like it.
