Grand Trunk UL Reliability
Hey all, I'm new to hammocks and wanted a low-cost option to enter the arena. It sounds like the GTUL is a great option, but I have one main hesitation:
I have read several comments about folks having it rip right down the middle after a few uses, with them in it, stranding them in the field with no sleep system. A couple of these reviews are coming from Amazon.com. What are yall's thoughts on this?
If this is not the best place to ask about this then I apologize...please direct me to the proper section.
Thanks in advance for your help,

The ridgeline doesn't need to be amsteel... That's WAY overkill... Most of mine are dynaglide or ZingIt... And they hold me up fine... I ordered some of mine from arrow head equipment... They are great people with good prices...
I enjoyed my grand trunk and I bought mine for the same reason your buying yours, as my gate way hammock... After the GTUL I suggest buying a tablecloth from tableclothfactory.com and whipping you up a big one... Those things are way more comfy than the UL but significantly heavier... A trade off that's sometimes worth it in the pack...
