    Latest/lightest bridge suspension?

    What is the latest and lightest bridge suspension? I have never even tried a bridge hammock, but I want to make one. I looked at the bridge tutorials under the Helpful Hammock Articles, but I wonder if the suspensions have changed since 2007/2008. Any help would be appreciated.

    several of us have made bridge hammocks using cord through a channel on the sides rather than webbing. Might be that TeeDee documented this in his mini-series on Bridge Hammock design. Discussed here and there but good luck on finding that! I seem to recall hangnout talking about that recently, maybe you can just scan his posts, he only talks when he has something to say.

    but then yes, opie has it. Dynaglide used exclusively, no lighter bridge hammock possible until the next breakthrough in cord technology.

    That is the thread I need.

    JDShearer,

    That is exactly the thread I needed! Now I've got something to work towards.

    Lots of practical info on Hammock Forums.
