So I've been looking at the WBBB for a long time. I've been wondering though: With the footbox, does the WBBB work with a full length UQ like the Stormcrow Incubator?
Thanks for any info,
yes it works.
Yes it works, but there's a learning curve.
It's an easier fit on hammocks like the Speer or WB Traveller...lower fiddle factor.
works perfectly, Adam actually demostrated his incubator on a 1.1 dbl WBBB at his shop, PERFECT

If it helps any, I am in the same boat as you. I just ordered a WBBB dl 1.7 and a full-length Stormcrow UQ. I posed the same question to Adam (Stormcrow) when I ordered from him and he assured me it would work fine. He even agreed to shorten up the suspension for me so I have a little less fiddle-factor when it arrives. I went with his UQ over some of the others available because it is wider, which I think will fit me better. I'm not a skinny fellow you see...
In short, Adam was great to work with and I have no concerns with my purchase.
The problem I've encountered with the Blackbird is that the footbox captures the quilt very effectively, and pulls the quilt out from under my left shoulder. Right now, I'm playing with a second ridgeline outside the net. This makes it possible run shockcord to just one side of the quilt...I can rig a shockcord to hold the quilt under my shoulder. I've also used a small "mini quilt" under my shoulder as a supplement, and that works well.
In a recent thread, Adam pointed out that there is a head and a foot end on the quilt, the head being a bit wider. He also recommended hanging the quilt very tight. I haven't had a chance to try this, yet. The learning never stops.
