So now I have the soft shackles made my hammock set up is complete for now. The way I have it set up is as follows:
Tree huggers with a marlin spike hitch to the whoopie sllings to the soft shackle to the continuous loop.
This method works really well for me, its quick to put up and easy to alter to get the hang just right.
I may latter look at putting in a structal ridge line but for now I happy with the set up.
Pics to follow.
