12200re: hammock ridgeline stresses
- Jan 2, 2006Dave, I'm familiar with the Hennessey - it's one of the ones I
own. You said:

inserted the carabiner? If you did that, you could easily insert
something like a fish weight hanging scale and determine the strain
in the ridgeline. Testing the strain in the ridgeline I can't see
that it holds a significant portion of the force vector that is on
the hanging ropes, especially not to the point that you need to
consider that load in your hanging rope calculations.
