I see the main piece and the pocket sewn to the bottom. Am I missing something?
Also interesting about the spreader ends. I found 5/8" of the 7075 to be plenty strong but I guess they need to make double sure in the production/reliability sense.
I did not check out the main pocket on the bottom because it had an UQ on. I wish I had. The main body is actually what is 3 pieces. There is a rectangle taht your body lays on. And then there is 2 side pieces that have a 4 inch catcut in them.
I assume the pocket on the bottom was sewn at the same place as the middle piece. I am guessing it is difficult to cut the main body in one piece for the manufacturer. I am imagining they are die cut and not some old lady with a pair of scissors. But it is only a guess. They reassured me it is really solid stitching.
Your spreader bars are Aluminium I assume. I thought thiers were rolled steel but I didn't check it out.
