Another way to try (at least look at) alot of hammocks is to attend one of the hangouts.
Ed Spears Has several through the year. A notable one is on Springer Mt in GA Newyears eve.
There is one at Red River Gorge in KY in a few weeks.
AND a Hang out possibly at Mt Rogers in VA at a date to be determined.
At Traildays in Damascus we have our own "gated community" of hangers, Last year I counted at least 28 different hammock set ups. Um, OK, I counted 28 Hangers, all 28 were different set ups, even the commercial "complete set ups in a box" were modified in some way. PLUS, there were 6 hammock vendors.
