    Question New Eldorado question

    Has anyone purchased a new Eldorado recently? I have a gen 1 DL XLC that came with the toggles to connect the net to the continuous loops. I also purchased a SL Eldorado about 1.5 years ago and it came with carabiners to attach the net to the continuous loops. I've learned that I prefer the reverse lay and my gen 1 XLC isn't reversible and I wanted a firmer hammock, so I just recently purchased a double layer Eldorado. It arrived today and one of the first things I noticed was the lack of carabiners on the netting and the elastic sleeve is no longer there to cover the little end hole. The attachment loop for the carabiners isn't found on the netting any longer. I figured it was design change, but I wanted to see if anyone else has noticed this.

    Thanks

    I flipped the net on mine after I got it about a year ago. It doesn't have a carabiner but it does have the elastic sleeve. The net is zipped on and the sleeve covers the gap.

    Bought my Eldorado in May of this year, have nothing to compare it to. No carabiners on the ends but it does have an elastic band where the bug net is attached to the hammock body.

    Same here, bought my Eldorado in May. No carabiners and has the elastic bands to cover the ends. The net just zips up to the ends of the hammock.

    I wonder why they put carabiners on the Blackbird and not the Eldorado? Seems like the exact same setup only without the shelf.

    Could just be a mistake and they forgot to add the bands. I recommend contacting them. [email protected]

    Not sure if/why they quit adding the small biners. Perhaps on the Eldorado there is no pressure on the net due to lack of the weight of gear being in the shelf.

    Cool, a reply from the Shug.

    Thanks to all that replied. I was mistaken. When I went to check my 1.5 year old SL Eldorado, I didn't realize I had the XLC net on it. The XLC net comes with the carabiner. I found the original Eldorado net from 1.5 years ago and it indeed does not have the carabiner.

    It looks like warbonnet either stopped supplying the elastic bands or they just forgot to include it with mine. I may contact them or I may not. The bugs are not really an issue here in West By God Virginia and I leave the net rolled back most nights.

    Thanks all.

    Yeah, I went ahead and sent an email to warbonnet and Greg quickly replied and said they would send out a pair ASAP. Their products and customer service has always been top notch.
