The following photos are of a WS that has been outside most of the winter. I used the setup to test/tweak winter gear setups. I posted pics of these slings months ago while we were exploring the effects of freezing and ice buildup on WS's. I moved the hammock and slings inside a couple of weeks ago because I'm just tired of all this snow.
Last night while swapping out hammocks I noticed the bury looked funky to say the least. It almost looks like the strands going in one direction are missing?! Closer inspection reveals no broken or missing strands. Weird
I've left the rig up and I'm going to continue to use it to the edge of my comfort level. I have it set up over a pullout couch so in the worst of all worlds it should only be a rude awakening if things go awry. Who knows? It may last forever.
Anyone else have the same or similar experience?
