    mountain man mic, where can I find more info about the Headchanger "tubular, top down fold towards the center" whip you mentioned?'
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    A variation on this is to fold accordion style instead of roll. In my experience this has a similar effect (more tension in the middle and edges) but is not quite as extreme. A little less flat but a little mor natural feeling.

    I have found that I prefer the gathered (blackbird) style whipping. It does not produce as flat a lay but the tension is consistent and the hammock has a more comfortable feel over all.

    As was suggetsed, if you arc, the channel hem just a bit that would bring the sides up. Not sure I would do this but if you want to try... I expect a small adjustment to have a significant impact so take care if you decide to try this.

    Arcing the hem sounds like a lot of work to get it where you want it... Certainly give it a try, but the WBBB method with a 24" stretch side is awesome...

    No dispute. I would go with stretch sides before something as rigid as a channel arc myself. I was merely picking up on Alamosa's thougth on arcing the channel to add that a small adjustment would have an greater impact than one might expect.

    I've considered this... sort of making a bow shape with the channel... narrower at the edges, wider in the middle of the channel.

    Never done it though. Anybody got any insight into this?

    I bet getting that arc right would even challenge tncamper's always-steady sewing skills.
