    And they are still almost double the prices over Redden.... Unless the sale price only shows up in the cart right before checkout.

    Doing some background checking, I found this thread. I noticed that the end channels were using 3/16 and the longer side channels were using 1/8. Question: Why a different/thicker cord on the end channels? Second question: how much cord should be ordered for a UQ.

    Adding one more question to Trout's list. How tight do you pull the suspension cord of your quilt? i.e. max stretch, or just snug to the hammock?
    My knife is so sharp it cut the sixth finger off my right hand! On the plus side, Inigo Montoya no longer hunts me.
