That being said, I have the Claytor JH, a WBBB and a WB Traveler. I cant truthfuly tell you which hammock I like better because I sleep in all of them. They all have pros and cons...................................
Hmm,,,, where have I heard that before, sounds real familiar? Oh... Me!
R&G, that's how I feel about several hammocks. Pros and cons, sometimes even when you have them it's kind of hard for me to choose. Out of 3 or 4 of my favs, none is a clear cut winner in all areas over the others. One might win in one or 2 areas, but then another will win in other areas.

It can't compete weight wise, but it's cheap, really durable, includes a tarp and you get free shipping!.
What does the CL.JH actually weigh minus the the tarp? If the web site weight are correct ( I'm not sure they are- I know my No Net weighs more than they claim), about 1 lb 13 oz? If that is right, that is actually a bit less than my WBBB 1.7 double weighs. Again, the JH might weigh more than claimed.
