hammock where the Australian one uses rope? Unless you stitched the spectra all along the edge as the Australian one did it wouldn't work. Also, you would need a twisted rope to hold the stitching in twists of the rope. Braided or rope with a braided cover wouldn't work. Really narrow webbing, probably polyester webbing for the strength would work. The webbing could be sewn in the hem easier than rope and sewn to the fabric at the same time. Wouldn't want to use any webbing wider than 1/2" though. The webbing would pucker along the curve if too wide and distort the curve.
For those of you lucky people who got to try out the JRB hammock at Trail Days I have a question for you: How did you get in and out of the hammock?
I noticed looking at the pic of the JRB hammock it looks like one of the ends is open. You don't crawl through the end of it do you?
I was also looking at the webbing used for the suspension. Are those biners at the junction of where the hammock webbing meets the webbing that goes to the trees?

to get a better idea of what my trekking pole does, lay in a top entry hammock, reach up w/ both hands & spread the top edges of the hammock out.
it doesn't take a lot to open it up.
when you do, your shoulders make a little less contact w/ the hammock walls & you have a better view of the world around you. ...tim
