    I have some o the old group buy digital camp "1.1" that I once read was incorrect and it's actually 1.0. I do know it feels thinner than 1.1 and is uncoated. Pm me if interested.

    I saw a recent post where buttinasling uses some 1.1 oz, that by their calculations, actually comes in at 1.0 or .9 oz.

    exup, i'd be interested, but it might be a while. if you still have it when i am purchasing more material or i don't go with a BIAS wwm then i will pm you.

    thats what got me thinking about it, was kind of thinking of another diy if i dont go that route.

    i have thought of that as well, but i would be slightly concerned of the longevity of the material at 175ish lbs.

    I appreciate all the replies, keep them coming. i am not a concerned gram weenie, but yesterday i measeured my diy wondering how long it was and realized i was sleeping in a small hammock. being used to the size of a little over 9ft, i could probably get away with it; but now that i am fulltiming (about a week now) i want something thats a little longer and more of an industry standard. in other words i am going for comfort, and like the strechiness of a thinner hammock body. Thanks again.
