while a lot of good things can be said about the hennessy for starters, i myself just jumped right in and bough a BB. havent looked back since, why bother getting something you know isn't going to make you happy in the long run. get the BB and if hammocking doesn't work out for you then just resell it online here at the forum for not much of a loss. there is no sense in getting something you know you will have to tweak to make you happy. just buy something you know will get the job done and do so for years to come.
