John - what a great offer (which I took you up on!) Thanks so much!
I bought the straps on sale at Gander Mountain a year ago, before I knew anything. I even bought the pro 10' ones. I didn't know they were the wrong material.
I was wondering which side to put the new hammock on. Thanks! will try it out. I'll let you all know how safe it feels and is. Pretty easy to damage if it's already ruined! (2.2 crinkle).
I do have a Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter to try and my Handy Hammock is on the way - was thinking of putting the yellow inside, but I see how the physics of the tear work, the stress and weight would push me through the opening - like being sucked out of an airplane.
Thanks for the insightful responses. This is a great community!
