I decided to switch to the blackbird because i liked the design of the Hennessy, but warbonnet looked like it had a couple little improvements on the design. I like the double bottom so I can use a sleeping pad to warm my but, and the foot box design (essentially an extra fold of fabric at the foot end) is supposed to allow you to have a really flat lay regardless of height, and take some of that pressure off of the back of your knees. I can't speak for the Clark, but you still won't go wrong with a Hennessy, they are still an excellent sleeping system. I found a lot of people claim they don't need pads or underquilts in a Clark system, but if you are going to get a Hennessy, seriously consider their super shelter system because a sleeping bag just does not cut it. I tried so hard...I hear a lot of great things about the Clark's but I just like the simplicity of HH and blackbirds, I found the diagonal lay the most comfortable thing about them, something that is hard in a Clark apparently. Also consider an underquilt. If Wollongong's nights have been as cold as Newcastles lately you will know what I mean. Worth every cent. So, with a super shelter or an underquilt included all those hammocks are in a pretty similar price range, if it makes it easier. You won't be disappointed whichever way you go.
If you end up not enjoying your hammock, they get snapped up pretty quick online at regular prices. Most Australian buyers are glad to just to avoid waiting times and massive international postage fees.
