- Jul 6, 2004Rick,
I was a little curious about the advantage of using whipped ends. I
think you mentioned before that you were not hemming the short ends
of the hammock when you used Ed's overhand knot but that you do hem
the short ends of the hammock when you use the whipped ends. You
still use less fabric with the whipped ends, but you have added cord
to the whipped ends. Seems to me the overhand knot is easier to make
and is known to be trouble free. Any idea of how much weight you are
saving using the whipped ends versus the overhand knot?
