    Thumbs up Video: 2q & Zq Mod4

    Well .. I got my new HH Mod 4 from the fine folks at 2Q & ZQ Hammock Specialties ... and I was not even slightly disappointed.

    This has got to be the way to go ... the only way to go for modifying the HH for me.

    The option will be included in their offerings this evening but here is what I got. An almost completely removable mosquito net that packs into it's own permanently attached small peak bag. I have a full length single pull zipper on the right side (right as you are laying in the hammock) and a two way full length zipper on the right hand side. The two way and fully retractable mode is accomplished by a single full length zipper that has three pulls. Two facing each other head to head and one that is similar to the right hand zipper.

    Tim and Donna are the nicest, most creative people I've never met! Hope to remedy that this next month ... but again their work and creativity have provided hammockers with another reason to love their Hennessey Hammocks.

    Apparently I had a hole in my netting ... probably from packing my gear while laying it on the hammock netting. ZQ on her own ... repaired this for me. Now how is that for customer service?

    Like my previous purchases from them ... the workmanship is fantastic. It just doesn't look like it was ever modified ... EVEN my repair work! Looks like it came from the manufacturer like this!

    You'll have to wait for Tim to get back with us on the amount of weight change to the hammock but it's basically the weight of the extra full length zipper and the extra pulls. It's nothing for the functionality you are getting. So "gram weenies " this will be your only sticking point ...


    Thank you for letting me be the second one to get this new mod ... Tim got the first one. He also got cookies with his though! Come to think of it ... I'm probably fat enough ... so no harm, no foul on that one!

    I was and still am suffering from Jet Lag ... so please ignore the ramblings in this video ... can't help it! Beyond even my normal MCD! (Mad Cow Disease).

    NOTE: Apologies to Tim and Donna for mis-spelling "Specialties" in the title ... MCD!

    Just loaded so give it time to process ... looks nasty when they're still processing ...

    Another excellent mod. I heard a rumour that they can make ones that were modded b4 and make them a mod4. Great vid and very informative. Hawk is cute.

    Great video and review Hawk-eye. 2Q & ZQ have once again out did themselves. That is a great HH mod. ZQ's work is nothing short of perfection. She even takes time to fold the hammocks ever so neatly prior to shipping. Top notch product by top notch folks!

    Great job on the video. If I had a Hennessy I'd surely be having that mod done.

    And Michael, you can just call me Jerry.
