Has anyone here tried the whoopie hooks made by Dutchware? I know they are talked about on hammockforums.
I have some on order, they look pretty sweet. Since I am a sucker for titanium I also had to order some of his tarp flyz too, and some more poly webbing to make up new tree huggers (tree sap sucks).
Check out his site, didn't know if members on this site were aware of this stuff.
The whoopie hooks are 3.4 grams each, are rated to hold 1000lbs and work with 7/64th amsteel. No more toggles or carabiners. They should also make a great water drip stop.
The tarp flyz are 2 grams each, work with 1.75mm zing-it and allow for a quick way to attach your tarp to trees with only a very minor weight penalty. I have used 1.75mm zing-it for 2 years for my tarp lines, I have had luck knotting it but knots have slipped at times and with cold fingers can be a bear to untie.
It looks like my set-up will lose a little weight overall and increase speed of setup and simplicity.
