Any massive differences between the traveller and the GTUL?

For me it was in the size that made the difference. I get a more comfortable lay in a longer hammock.
Traveler- 65”W x 120”L
GTUL- 54"W x 114"L

+1 on the ENO Dbl... Maybe it's the slight stretch or softer fabric, I just like it better than my 1.7 Traveler.
Love my Traveler. I have a blackbird as well, but like the versatility of the Traveler. When it's cooler and I carry heavier insulation, I can leave the net behind. I will say that I significantly shortened the ridgeline (around 90 inches) to get the amount of sag that was best for me.
Here is a video that I made that shows my Traveler setup:

I have 2. Spent more time in my travelers than any other hammock I own.
Get one you can't go wrong.
found it to short, but sold it for what i paid (w/whoopies)

I like the modular design of the Traveler and the WB Bug Net. I only need a bug net about 3 months of the year so I prefer to leave unneeded items at home. I loved my Eno Single Nest but moved up to the Traveler because I am 6'2' and was pushing 240lbs at the time and required more room. I spent a lot of time trying to decide between the BB and the Traveler and I found a post somewhere on this forum where WarbonnetGuy said that the foot box of the BB didn't change the lay between the two hammocks (I'm sure there will be debate on that). Add that to the fact that I already owned the Bug Net (used it for my Eno) and I couldn't justify the cost difference between the Travel and BB. My only regret is that I went with the 1.1dbl and wish that I would have just gone with the single. At the time I was heavier than I am now and I know that played into my decision.
