The arms don’t match the body. It’s like the “Man hands” Seinfeld episode

I’ll be making myself one, from lower quality rope because its lighter and cheaper. Am not that heavy after all. Great video, thank you a lot!

awesome video, i will be making smaller hammocks to hold all sorts of stuff on my boat now that i know how it’s done. very clear instructions! one thing though: how do i make/where can i get the torpedo shaped cord dispenser (is it called a shuttle?) and how best to load the cord from a roll onto it? thanks man!

Still wondering how.

He said it in the video it takes about a third of a 1,000 foot spool. So around 300 feet. I talked to a guy that also makes them and he said that he could get two hammocks out of a spool with a little bit of cord left over. So it depends on how tight you make the weave. Also, do you have a video on how to make the starting braid? I understand how to continue it, but i dont know how to start it.

I would assume that you would need about 350 ft, playing it safe. He says that he used 1/3 of his 1000′ rope.

How do you start the first part?

is there anything about this video instruction that you would change now that you have “broke” it in? is there anything you could impove on from its original design?, thanks Brent

fishhook4ever @ 10:06 am #

the first knot that he was doing in the video is shown when you search google “fusion knots” and the believe the sinnet braid and others will be easy to find,

fishhook4ever @ 10:08 am #

with a sinnet braid found when you search google for “fusion knots” and fusion knot downloads, i believe it is a sinnet or caterpiller sinnet, sorry about the spelling, my voice text doesnt always work right,lol, but start looking there, sinnet

fishhook4ever @ 10:09 am #

do you think he is using 1 long strand? im guessing the less broken up strands the better,but was wondering your opinions

fishhook4ever @ 10:10 am #

check out “fusion knots” on google and look for the pic there, free downloads will show you,

fishhook4ever @ 10:38 am #

CAN ANYBODY TELL ME IF THIS WAS DONE WITH ONE LONG STRAND OF PARACORD OR NOT? mY GUESS WOULD BE YES, BETWEEN 350-400FT WORTH,AND iM WONDERING IF THERES A BETTER DAY TO KEEP THE HOLES SMALLER AND TIED SO THE HAMMOCH WILL LAST LONGER,

shmidster @ 4:39 pm #

Just made one with the kids came out awesome! We used seven rolls of 50ft cord and just tied them together at the ends and got different color patterns this way. Thanks!

Alb12468 @ 8:37 pm #

sorry i dont know, but what you said sounds right to me if i had to guess

He is using separate strands for each chain border, and an additional strand for the bulk of the net, for a total of 3.

It is possible to do a single strand, but the workload rises exponentially. (You’re not getting done in the two hours claimed in the video)

TheAtomicAss @ 10:46 am #

This design is a “knot-less” design, i.e., it does not have knots in the main weave.

There is another way to make a hammock, with knots at the cross points in the weave. Most other videos for paracord hammocks on Youtube demonstrate that method.

Both methods can have smaller holes if you weave them into the support braids at shorter intervals.

As for what will last longer? That is opinion-based, and in my opinion, so long as it is not cut, a hammock made of one piece of cord will last longer.
