The advert for this in the upper right corner caught my attention, as this thread had not.
I am surprised and disappointed by the absent enthusiasm, so far, for a product which is, tbomk, innovative in its engineering and a real solution. Not much of a welcome.
On suitability to hammocks used here: Well, for all the concern over weight, chalk up another casualty to long hammocks, which in addition to needed wider spacing, also need longer tarps with the added weight that length implies. Before dismissing this portable stand, which IS sized to fit, with gap underneath, every hammock Clark makes and a lot of other "backpacking hammocks" I'd encourage some of you on this thread to consider that a square yard of water-impermeable fabric, a ground cloth, would take care of concerns for the UQ when this is used with less than optimal spacing.
More, we'd all benefit from hearing more from some engineering / math types at HF on how this kit works, structurally. I haven't seen anything like it.
