    Someone just tell me what to get

    I cannot for the life of me decide what hammock to buy from Dutch. The biggest reason is too many option. I've read about the fabrics on different threads but still stuck.

    Can I get some real world opinions from current users of the 11 ft no net hammock? Or someone that is personally familiar with each fabric option.

    Most interested in the poly d 1.4. The argon 1.6 and the Hexen 1.6.

    I am 6'2" and 220 lbs. I am upgrading from an ENO doublenest and don't even know what a hammock made of any other material feels like.

    I have an Argon 1.6 11' in my collection. I'm 5'11" (was 6&1/2 when young) & 260lb. Very comfortable hammock.

    I'm 6'2" have an 11ft DIY Argon 1.6. Really comfy. Don't have any experience with the other fabrics, but the new Hexon sounds really nice also.

    I've used the Dutch PolyD 1.4 for a while now - love the low stretch of the polyester!

    Whereas I like some stretch and would tell you to go with the argon! This is a hard one, since everyone has their own answer. For what it's worth I have a similar build to you.

    I just sewed up an 11 footer in Hexon 1.6. Very comfortable. I think it may be my new favorite fabric. The NylonD is also very nice, but not as nice feeling on the skin as the Hexon.

    Thinking a little more I want to go with less stretch so I've got something opposite my ENO. So I guess it's down to the poly d 1.4 and the hexon 1.6.

    Keep the advice coming. Only one more decision to make so I can place my order.

    Confusing isn't it? I've had one of the original argon hammocks for a while and like it. Just got a Hexon 2.4 this week. Haven't had too much time in it but I am really liking it. Both lay the same. I am not opposed to the feel of the argon but I do like the feel of the Hexon better. Chocolate or vanilla, you can't go wrong.

    Alright, I went with the Hexon 1.6 in brilliant blue. It seems I haven't heard anything but good about the Hexon material and I'm excited to try a longer and less stretch ride. Thanks for all the advice.
