1st, you should have a ~112" RL, which is not that much longer than the Explorers 108" ( 100" for Expedition/Backpacker?). But here is where the difference gets obviously different: There will be a much larger distance between the hammock body and the ridge line. I am over 6 feet, but if I sit in the Safari, the RL is well above my head, and if laying down I can barely reach it with my long arms. If I am sitting in my Explorer ( which is not a small hammock ) the RL hits the back of my neck. That is a big difference.
What this means is that there is huge sag in this hammock, more than about any other. Even though the RL is only 4" longer than the Explorer- the hammock fabric/body is MUCH longer than the Explorer. If you measure the length of the hammock along the curve, rather than along the RL, you will see it is maybe 10 or 20" longer than an Explorer and even more so than an Expedition. Huge sag.
A few pics of yours would help settle the question.
After having measured the hammock, I'm pretty sure that it is indeed the Safari model. Had I checked the Hennessy specs, I probably wouldn't have bought it. As I said, I already own a couple of Warbonnet and Wilderness Logic hammocks, and somehow I expected the Safari to be larger than the WL hammocks. The specs clearly confirm my impression that the Safari is a comparatively small hammock. The specs (hammock body) say:
HH Safari: 112" x 52"
WL Owls: 132" x 58"
WB BB/T: 120" x 65"
When lying in the Safari, I had no problem reaching the ridgeline. I never tried any other Hennessy hammock, so it might be that the Safari is huge compared to other Hennessys. But compared to the Warbonnets and Wilderness Logics it feels quite small.
I'm not saying it's not a good hammock. I didn't test it for more than a couple of minutes, so I don't know how well I would sleep in it. It simply wasn't what I expected - but as I said, this was my error. I should have checked the specs first. For what I'm looking for, I'll probably have to order a Roaming Gnome.
