    New Alabama Hanger convert

    Been lurking some lately, trying to get an education on hammocks and man is there a lot of information on here! I was about to order a Hennessy Explorer until I started reading about all the other choices available.
    I'm a North Alabama cyclist and plan to use my hammock at basecamps for organized rides (first this month on Silver Comet trail in GA, then in Michigan in July). I'm not really planning on carrying it often, but I can definitely see it happening in the future.
    I'm 5'8", 240#. Tell me folks, is the WB a superior product, or is the Hennessy just as good? I'm about narrowed down to those two, and I'm leaning toward the HH (don't ask me why).

    Welcome to the forum neighbor!

    I also have a WBBB and love it. No doubt you will get plenty of great advice from the members. It help me when I was shopping for a hammock.

    Welcome to the forums and good luck on the first of many decisions that you'll be making as time goes by! Be careful though, if you stay here long enough the answer to your question will become "get both"!!
