      thinking at least 1" tubular webbing for this type of set up.

      Thanks, what got my attention is:
      1) you would have different wear points every time you hang.
      2) the strength 5000 lb
      3) by doubling and seperating you distribute the bark compression
      4) cost is pretty low
      5) I could make my own with a permanent water knot
