    hammock converts

    A friend asked me a couple of months ago what hammock to buy, I told him the Warbonnet Blackbird seems to be the hammock of choice on hammockforums.net. He bought one and used it last weekend while camping with me and 5 other guys. There are 4 new hammock converts out there now, the other guy didn't even try the hammock, he just made up his mind and wasn't going to change it.

    one of the guys I am working with had a similar thought when he saw my hammock. first was aren't you worried about bugs( i showed him the netting) then came aren't yuo worried about flipping(I showed him the tie outs) finally the phrase I have to sleep flat on my back( I streched out on the diagonal). He may not buy one, but he was definatly impressed by how mine works.
