Thanks, BillyBob, for your input and opinions. I’m sure you’re right about the flex—although it seems minimal, I do not use a ridge line, so I can’t tell.

Your photo gallery on HF is nice, and plenty of shots of you using the Vario. Sweet. Also some shots of your homemade hammock stand. With all due respect, the Vario looks a tad more compact than your homemade one.

Nice house, sorry you lost your snapped off tree out there. With the Vario, I suppose it doesn’t matter much, BB.

Have a wonderful weekend. I’m hopping back into the Vario with my Kindle once I swap out whoopee slings that I just got from AHE to my Hennessey. Then I've got tons of chores this weekend, unfortunately, that I have been neglecting.
