the old ENO 'biners are incredibly tough. i've used them in a handful of wildly irresponsible ways and they've held up. that said, they weigh a lot, and the closure system is sturdy enough . i've been on the 'i really should replace them...' for ages now, but haven't gotten around to it, as that would involve buying four of whatever i do decide to get, which has proven to be a questionable sell to the financial manager(wife).

not because the price, mind, but the fact that i already have a set.

what i'd really like to do is upgrade to the rings, but i'm questioning the wisdom of undoing the knots on the hammock. seems like i could just leave it be and be happy, too.
