So.. if anyone is unhappy with the Flex and wants to trade for my Camo NX-250 with Z-liner, let me know and we might be able to work sth out!
love mine I have 2 and I'm thinking about selling my new spare flex-180 one to fund for a vortex to go camping with my lady with more room.
If i have to say one thing about the 180... (I see lots of us doing the 2 tree mod vs 3) Its great in all aspects when using the tripod hang... probably the only way comfortable and efficient enough to sleep 2 people (that aren't too big or off balance traditionally). More ventilation for 2 people would be great thinking about doing some mods. I took both of my grandson and my cousin on a hike & hunt and needed one of them on each side of me using a 3 tree hang (they are about 60-70 lbs a piece), on a 2 person hang I slept head to the opposite end of them while they used the 2 tree side.
As for a 2 tree set up it requires extreme tension and a lot of swinging lol. If done this with a lady friend in the Islands and it worked fine. the only issue is the off balance and more sag than meant for with the 2 tree hang vs 3... I wouldn't go crazy in a 2 tree hang... for sexual activities hahaha best best is the 3 tree hang (i was curious about it so i did further field testing)... when you wanna use the clark flex-180 find 3 trees... other wise your over paying for a hammock i would say. Comfort is this hammocks forte esp for anybody that happens to Be 5'8 and under. I know 5'10 It becomes just a regular comfort tent.
The 2 tree is a good mod if needed but if i wanted a kick *** $400+ hammock that wasn't a 3 tree base I would look at other options. more bang for your buck more gear for your ruck!
hang well and prosper!
