    "Regular" hammock stand do they work?

    Ya height is a problem for longer hammocks (like the 11' dream hammock). Works with my eno double though.
    I mostly use mine for casual hanging in the eno inside or on the deck. Still worth it to me.

    5/4 they informed me that their lead time is about 1 week.

    Does "lead time" mean the time to completion or the delay until they begin on an order?
