    Bro, that is totally awesome!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I own and use several hammocks but if I am camping out over night its the BB. Love that footbox as it allows me streach out with out feeling like I am pushing against fabric and gives me someplace o put my dainty size 14 feet.

    The footbox is the best of several excellent features in the Blackbird.

    The only negative point I have found is that in some pitches, for whatever reason, I get just a tiny bit of pressure at the back of my calves where the natural gathered shape of the hammock pushes into it, while the feet can drape back down. It's completely unnoticeable when I have my footbox pad in place, and only mildly noticeable in some pitches when I have no pad in place.

    I still love the footbox!

    The footbox is what sold me on the hammock (and the shelf, and the full netting, and the side zipper, well mostly it was all the positive reviews on here, but the footbox definately was a big factor)

    The way to correct that is to make sure that you have the right sag and also hang the foot end a bit higher than the head end. I've heard some hang the foot end as much as 8 inches higher, but I personally find that 2-3 inches is sufficient. This will also stop you from slowly sliding "downhill" into the footbox overnight.

    Happy hanging. The WBBB rocks!

    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can.
    Pursuing it with eager feet
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say."

    I think the footbox is great. Main reason I love it is new hammockers. I am working with 5 new hammockers on set ups. I find new hammockers uninterested in the long conversations I go into about a diagonal lay. With my Hennessey its hard to explain where exactly to put ones feet. With the foot box all i have to say is put your feet in the box. Less headache for then and less explaining for me, super.

    Agreed! I don't get the tad bit of pressure though. Enjoy the footbox, shelf and so on!
