i have generated a few holes in the nylon of my eagle's nest i bought in 2000 and before i bought this one i had a campmor rig with the spreader bars. this setup had developed weak spots. well i strung it up on a steep grade and later that night the whole thing gave way and i took a quick trip down the hill in a sleeping bag. has this ever happened to anyone else? what about a timber hitch slip as soon as you sit down. that will humble anyone.
