    WB Yetti with RR

    Does anyone use, or have used a yetti with any success on the Ridgerunner? I have a yetti from my BB and have recently aquired a RR was hoping to use the yetti with it so as not to have to buy another UQ. I have seen the Shug video where he attaches one but would like some feedback from someone who has field tested this setup. Thanks

    My uninformed guess is that it will work just fine. Maybe better than on a gathered end, since the foot(or any other) pad works better for me in any bridge than in a gathered end. I have the original Climashield version, and I have used it successfully on JRB bridges, but I don't think I have tried it on mt WBRR. But, I have a JRB MW3 convertible, and in short mode, it works superbly- as good as it gets- on both my JRB bridges and WBRR.

    However, the bad news is: According to WB, who should know, it will NOT work with the RR. "The Yeti is our under quilt for end-gathered hammocks like our Blackbird, Blackbird XLC and Traveler series, but will also work on just about any end-gathered design. (It will NOT work on our Ridgerunner hammock, for that you need the Lynx)". Perhaps due to the asym cut? But I would still give it a try.

    Ill give it a go in the yard and see how it does. May end up trading up to a proper fitting one down the road just hoping to get more use out of the one I have.
