19241Knots in Spectra
- Aug 3, 2008I have tied bowline and an alpine butterfly knots in my Hennessey
Hammock spectra so I could use other ways of tying my hammock than the
Hennessey Wrap. The Wrap was tedious and was causing some wear and tear
on the tree huggers.
Well, both knots were almost impossible to untie, taking 15-30 minutes
each (no teeth, no marlinespikes). The alpine butterfly was a little
easier. So, after tying these knots, using them, and seeing how hard
they are to untie and what they can do to the line (shiny compressed
sections), I've decided that the Hennessey Wrap probably is the best way
to go if you want to take care of your spectra. It is also the
lightest, because it does not require any extra hardware.
I've not yet tested the Wrap on a system with a carabiner between the
tree huggers and the spectra, but expect it will work the same, provide
a drip-line, and prevent wear and tear on both huggers and spectra.
who admits that tree huggers will be a whole lot easier to replace than
