Baha, I have a RidgeRunner and an 11ft gathered end. Was trying to find a way to explain the bridge style when a friend, trying it out, called it a floating bed. That's kind of how I think of it also. It is comfortable for me at 5'10" 180 but I personally sleep sounder in the gathered end hammock. Each type has pluses but like certain shoes, one or the other may not fit you. I like having both styles but that's me. There are lots of great hammock makers and being comfortable is the key. Good luck and comfortable hanging.
