A experienced hammocker would have an UQ by the time he was a "experienced hammocker"
there is a reason why ppl go right from a wallyworld blue pad to a UQ
yes a pad is a great and cheap way to get into hammocks and there is nothing wrong with a WW pad... BUT
once you try a UQ for the first time...there is just NO going back
it's like going from Reg TV to HDTV.... once you make the jump you just can't go back
Don't get me wrong...there are ppl that have used WW pads for years and are fine with it...and there is nothing wrong with this...to each there own .... but once you get that first UQ...you will know what i'm talking about
