    I've had a BIAS Buganator for 5 years and just recently used it for the first time.

    That's why i don't care for integrated hammocks. That being said, it was fine. No issues. I just don't find...

    Keeping an eye on this one.

    Just came off of a weekend in the weeds on the KT. Bugs weren't as bad as I had anticipated. Rain, sticky hot, but cool enough at night to get comfortable.

    I use a 12' AHE Toxaway on my 10.5' DH Freebird. Plenty of coverage there. I'm starting to look hard @ the 11' WB Thunderbird/1/2 doors.
    I think an 11' hammock would fit fine under one of those.

    D-Rings. I stick Prussics on them and go w/o any other hardware or knots. I still use braided mason line for the Prussics. Bites into Glowire way better than Zing-it.
