I really think UQ is the way to go.
I have the "thepreacherswife" 1/2 UQ
It's a rectangular 1/2 Down UQ.
Before the Blackbird i used a kind of fixed suspension,
that didn't work on the Blackbird.
So i followed Brandon's advice and i added tubular webbing on both sides of the UQ.
Through those tubular webbing goes two shock cords from the head end to
That makes the UQ adjustable.
On the short sides, small diameter shock cord was preinstalled by the thepreacherswife, works great to snug the UQ up against the hammock fabric,
by simply tightening it.
Over all it works great!
Does it makes sense?
