I started with a gathered, knotted end Risk style Test Hammock with unhemmed Wal-Mart $1.00 yard fabric and poly webbing.
Soon after I purchased my HHExplorerUL from REI (that way if I didn't like it I could take it back but never did).
It wasn't long until I added some 2nd hand commercial made gathered end top entry hammocks to the collection.
Then came the Skeeter Beeter UL and later the Skeeter Beeter Pro.
It seemed like no time until the WBBB was added to the stable.
Although I have traded, sold, and given away many hammocks, I still have that first test one, along with a good assortment of others.
"Choose" he asks? I can't decide where I like to go out to dinner most, much less which hammock is the best.
I think the hammock I like best is the one that I am in at any given moment.
