    Who can build a custom hammock for me?

    I just got back from a 5 day hike in Mount of the Holy Cross Wilderness south of Vail, Colorado...slept in my ultralight-asym Hennessy and couldn't get comfortable to get much sleep (forgot to snag sleeping pills from a friend!).

    Who builds custom hammocks? i want a hammock that lies flat like the Jacks-r-Better "Bridge" but a lot lighter and uses my trekking poles for the stabilizer bars. i'm only 5'6" and 155 pounds so don't need their mammoth model for 6'3", 250 pounders. i don't have the time or talent to make my own...who can i ask to build it for me?

    yea I heard grizz doesnt want to be making them which is why he made the video series so others could make there own. also I believe warbonnet has one coming out but It might be alittle while. also I mean it only weighs 37 ounces with spreader bars. I mean if you used your own spreader bars you could bring that down some possibly. but I mean Im not a gram guy but still thats not that bad.
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Randy : yea but just remember yer roots and where ya come from....you got Hennessy in yer blood son......

    You could also switch the suspension to amsteel whoopies to lose some weight on it.

    you could also look into the WBBB ... they have a very flat lay
    i know grizz put a hold on making hammocks i'm not sure if he started back up again ... you can try Dutch as well

    how did you hang your HH?
    did you follow the instruction on the bag?
    any pics?
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold
