Again, I think this is unfair to Brandon. Calling the Blackbird "more of the same" doesn't give credit to the amount of clever design that went into this thing.
You're not going to feel the difference in the lay without laying in one, so I suggest you show up to a group hang and try one out, or if you're thinking about buying one, go ahead and buy it.
Brandon offers a 90 day satisfaction guarantee on his hammocks - as far as I know, NO ONE has taken him up on that offer yet.
Oh, I thought of another difference in the way the ENO is whipped versus the blackbird. Search these forums and you can find several mentions of "edge flop" in ENO doubles - that is, where the loose edge of the hammock flop around, either laying on you, or flapping in the wind. It gets on some peoples' nerves quite a bit, and isn't a problem for others. The blackbird doesn't have this issue.
