I am new to the world of hammocks as well and can understand you feelings here. As is stated here.."Hang your own hang". Enjoy it.
I am starting out with a pretty much stock Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter Pro. I will try that for a while. It is great to see so much information here, but at the same time, I will decide what I want and when. f I run into a problem, then I am sure the folks around here will have suggestions to help, but no matter how much I read, I still need to experience things first hand and find out what I like.
Enjoy - OFG
