I have the NX250. I have slept 2 nites in a WBBB. I love the Clark - and probably didn't give the Warbonnet a fair chance.
The Clark has a slightly narrower bed than some others but the hoops keep it spread comfortably. A diagonal lay is possible but not necessary as there doesn't seem to be a center ridge like I had in the Warbonnet.
In the Warbonnet I needed insulation anytime the temps got into the low 70's. In the Clark, I can go down to around 50 degrees without anything in the pockets or any underquilt. However, at that temp my legs and feet are getting cold below the area where the pockets are. Still working on that issue.
The Clark is a few ounces heavier than the Warbonnet but that is offset by not needing to carry extra insulation much of the time.
The Clark Storm Sheild is a great feature.
I also like the fact that no side tieouts are needed in the Clark (with hoops).
I might add - I am 6'5", 190 lbs - and have plenty of room in either hammock.
