Papasmurf finished my new thunderbird in time for me to take it to the NEHHA this weekend. I had been deliberating between his 2.3 poly blend and the lighter nylon taffeta. Then I get an email from PS that he found a 1.8 oz poly taffeta material. I told him that was exactly what I was hoping for, a polyester fabric and less weight than the 2.3 oz. the hammock is awesome with a 1.0 nylon TC. The lay is flat with just enough stretch for me at 170 lbs. super comfortable great looking hammock! I slept like a baby through the torrential rains last night..
Thank you PapaSmurf for a great hammock, and for also going the extra mile with all my emails and finding the perfect balance of weight and comfort for me.
