Brian - I switched a week ago and then my other shoulder started hurting
I'm glad about the upgrade, however, that two extra feet make my hammock look HUGE! I have another 4 yards of ripstop, I think I'll try an 11' and sell/gift whichever two I'm less keen on.
I would be very interested in your comparison of the 11 vs 12 footer.
If you do make an 11 footer please let us know your findings.
I'm really glad to hear a longer hammock fixed your shoulder pain issue.
