    That depends on which photo you're looking at. I have, and still do use a few different ones.
    I have a Tensa Solo that I use when kayaking, bikepacking, and plane traveling.
    I also have 4 sections of military camo net spreader poles which I think are the same as what some call antenna mast sections. Two sections make a good height.
    I've also used wooden closet rods and once an off-cut juniper branch that was in a tree trimmings pile.

    My fav is the spreader pole sections as they pack down pretty well, though not small like the Solo, and allow me to get a couple/few feet more in height at that end. The Solo, at the angle I set it at has me pretty close to the ground.

    This is from a 5 night event that I just returned from where I did "one tree" hangs off the back of a box truck. Here I'm using the spreader poles, 2 sections for each hammock.

    Test setup for a bicycle tour. I was able to lie in the hammock fine with this setup.

    Very cool!
    But I do have to ask, why so far from the tree and the bike? Don't you get a lot of drop when you get in the hammock w/ that much distance?

    I honestly cannot tell you why. Most likely I did it that way because I was quickly throwing the hammock up to test the setup and didn't give it any real thought. I was just proving to myself it could be done. I was able to hang in it just fine though. I was closer to the tree than the bike though, and that end was the foot end, so it remained higher than the head side, so I was able to lie in it properly.

    Ohh, I've been looking for pictures of setups just like this. Thanks @phughes !

    @LowTech I forget, did you ever find a picture of a Tensa Solo and bike zero tree rig?

    WB RR - Zero trees - does this count?

    Technically, a 0-tree hang. One of the fake trees is the Tensa Solo.
