    It might better be described a a reverse cat cut, because each

    This makes for a very comfortable hammock. The only drawback
    is once you cut you are committed. Adjustments can be made
    but usually at the expense of shortening the hammock some.
    i have wondered if that (reverse cat cut) might allow a flatter lay because of allowing the feet to hang lower???
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Most my hammock experiments so far have resulted in catastrophic failure. Now I hang very gingerly, low to the ground with something soft below.
