    Looking for hammock stand recommendations

    I'm wanting to be able to hammock where ever I go!

    Some requirements I have are:
    - portable
    - free standing, doesn't need an anchor point that is not already part of the stand
    - able to hold 300lbs

    What are your recommendations?

    Thanks Shug!
    I started out trying to message you directly via youTube but you must've felt that there was a hammocker out there in need!

    I don't have a YOBO stand but have Tensa 4 stand but they do require a staking point.

    I do for Tensa4, Tensa Trekking Tees and Tensa Solo. But don't really see a YOBO in my future.

    I guess I was a bit confusing when I said free standing, because I am considering the Tensa4 from your video. But the fact that the hive sleeps 2 kind of solves another problem for me.

    There are many stands with a similar upsidedown arch design. The challenge is to find one that is long enough for your hammock. Many would work fine for a 9 ft hammock but are not long/high enough to keep an 11 ft hammock at the desired angle and off the ground - but they are out there.

    If weight/bulk isn't a priority - like if you were going to use it at home or car camping - then you don't need to spend money on exotic materials (like carbon fiber construction).

    I'm pretty sure your, "... wherever I go ..." doesn't mean you'd take the same stand you'd use at home on a hike with you. Perhaps you could elaborate on the "...wherever I go ... " part a little more. Are you walking, driving, paddling, etc. ?
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    You're right! I would not be hiking with this stand. I would expect to be able to drive up to a spot and set it up.
