Welcome to the forums. Glad to see that your problem is working itself out. As for another hammock my go to hammock is a WBBB 1.7. I would not give it up for anything. But after watching Sgt Rock's recent video review of the No-See-Um No More Hammock Bliss. I had to get one to try myself. At $79.95 (even cheaper if you do a google search) it is a great bargain and I must say it is a darn fine hammock. I have hung in it a few times and give it two thumbs up. It has a definite place in my hammock arsonel.
