    Hyper D or Hexon for DIY hammock

    I am going to be making my first hammock and am trying to decide between hyper d 1.0 and hexon 1.0. I have the chameleon in 1.6, but I was wanting a lighter, more stretchy material. What are your thoughts between the two fabrics? And compared to the hexon 1.6. I am 6" and 140 lbs. Thanks in advance.

    Hexon 1.0 will suit you nicely.
    Best fabric in the world. IMHO of course

    Hexon 1.0 is a great fabric with the stretch you desire. Both fabrics are so similar in feel (hand) to be negligible in that regard. I find hexon silightly easier to work with due to less fraying. Other than basic description, the only other way to tell is to have tried them. Have fun!
