Questions about the BB
I didn't want to hyjack HC4U's post so I thought I'd start another one.
Pertaining to the 1.1 & 1.7 used to make the BB, if I have done the math correctly, I'm guessing that it weighs around 27.5 oz.
Is the reason the double is flatter because of less stretch?
How wide is the pocket for the CC pad?
I'm also guessing that if you use a JRB quilt with the BB, the side pocket hangs out over the top. From what I have read here the JRB HR should work fine.
What is the length of cord before the straps are attached?
I ask because of the way I adjust the UQ.
In all the pictures that I have seen the sides are pulled out. I use a HHUL right now and rarely tie out the sides. Will this effect anything other than the netting hanging inward? Guessing it's the same as the HH.
Do you send out demos to check out? (deposit required of course).
Sorry if some of the questions seem redundant. I've read most of the posts for the BB. May have missed a few answers.
Brandon is really helpful. PM Warbonetguy and ask away if I doesn't respond here.

yes, dl makes for a stronger hammock, so less stretch for a given weight the less your butt sags and the flatter the lay.
not sure what you mean by the length of the cord before straps are attached, do you mean how far are the tri-rings from the end of the hammock? they're about 7" away.
yes, the shelf would be above/outside the uq, and the tieouts just hold the netting out and away, still works the same un-staked.
the size of the pad pocket is the same as the hammock body (except the fabric between the zipper and the net and the shelf/footbox), so about 10'x 64"
i do offer a money back garantee if you decide you don't want it after trying it for a few weeks.
by my calcs, if you used 1.1 for the shelf/footbox and for the strip between the zipper and the net, and only used the 1.7 for one of the 10'x65" pieces, the hammock would weigh 3.2oz more than the dl1.1.
How does it get any better than that?

Thanks for the quick response. I believe you covered it all.
I'll try and weigh mine tonight.
