The WBBB is not flat enough. My BMBH is.
I'm just looking to add another hammock to the family and want to hear your opinions.
I haven't tried a bridge yet, but I hear those are as flat as you'll get. I have a 1.9 SL SB hammock. I have knee/leg issues, too. But I prefer to sleep with my legs slightly bent and sleep on my side quite a bit.
Most guys prefer a taut pitch with the SB and I do, too. With a tight pitch it can be pretty flat and, depending on your height, I think you may find it flatter than most hammocks b/c they are fairly long (10 ft) and offer more surface area than other hammocks. The tighter pitch and generous diagonal may allow for exactly what you are seeking.
I hope this helps.
