    Is there any silliness involved setting up an Amok? I have a 90degree. Same principle, but straps need to go higher on the tree by comparison. Thoughts?

    Looks like the Ridgerunner is doing just fine
    Merci Shug

    he's posted shots with his amok before


    you just have to be careful to not bias it too much

    amok swings a fair bit getting in (mine does anyway) and you can create a spectacular blow out of one of the poles if you're not careful (I blew up my 2x2 diy)

    Thank you Shug for another fun full flavoured documentary explaining the very things we the viewers want to know more about... as with here the Tensa4 hammock stand!

    Those there cicadas lovingly singing in sharing with their approvals to mate!

    This Tensa4 stand would be great to take out canoeing, would this stand be ok to set up on sand..... just thinking a little about where l would set up and how to preserve for the longevity of such a great stand.
    Thank you Shug!

    Actually ...pretty easy. Some adjusting required of course.



    A bit fussy to fit the Ridge Runner but can be done!

    Not set mine on sand but heard it works. Just make sure stakes or screws are set well.

    Sets up fine on sand: https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...=1#post1912852

    New production now coming together in volume is anodized; should hold up well to sand/salt etc. First generation was waxed raw aluminum. When the wax wore off, black hands. It's a great idea to brush off the telescopic poles before collapsing them to avoid them jamming/scratching with grit between the segments.

    With a good set up...and after one has tacoed a couple of times, it is not a problem.
    But hey...I did show myself hitting the ground on an on-purpose taco.
