I have the GTUL and I like it. I would go with that one, and then you can save your money for a better system later when you get the hang of it. You can keep an eye on the for sale forum and find you a great buy. I just got an entire setup for a good price on the for sale forum here, and it is an awesome setup. I wish I had waited for it, I have so many hammocks now I will be giving all the grandkids and kids a hammock for Christmas.
