    Visiting your primary care provider should be your first priority, today, now. You don't have to do this alone.

    Eldorado continuous loop stiff?

    So I replaced the CLs on my hammock and noticed the original ones felt like they had some sort of non-sticky stiffener on them. It's hard to explain, and maybe I'm just imagining things, but the cord...

    Yeah I saw the size spec charts, I just needed someone to explain the "why" of the sizing being the way it is. I've never messed with (or likely even seen) a TQ before and wanted someone to walk me...

    Great explanation! Thanks for spelling out the "why" of it all for someone who's never been around a TQ.

    It looks like I'll be set with a 55" wide 73" long TQ. I'm just a hair under 6',...

    So I'm pretty set on staying in the Warbonnet ecosystem, I started with a ElDorado SL and love it.

    My dumb question is this: What do the length and width measurements for the Diamondback mean? I...
  12. Well that's the best customer service I've ever seen.

    I ordered two pair of whoopie slings this evening (Memorial Day here in the US) while watching TV.

    Blackbird vs Eldorado

    According to the website, the only difference between the Blackbird and Eldorado is the gear shelf (and $60). I know the BB gets all the love, but if I'm not married to getting the shelf, am I for...
