    Schaefer beer is a good value too, but you won't catch me buying it.

    You're New So You Wouldn't Know This...

    and neither did I at first. I thought, "I'll do my research and find the perfect hammock and accessories and life, camping-wise, will be great!" Little did I know.

    You might as well pick either one, because it's not like you're only going to buy one hammock. Oh no! All hammocks should come with a label. WARNING: BUYING A HAMMOCK MAY BE ADDICTIVE. IN MANY CASES, HAMMOCK BUYERS HAVE BE UNABLE TO STOP BUYING HAMMOCKS AND RELATED GEAR AND NEED PROFESSIONAL HELP.

    Yep. I did my research, bought my Hennessey thinking I would be set. I now own 5 hammocks. And am waiting for a chance to get my hands on a WBBB, or a bridge. I love my Hennessey,but am always searching for that ultimate, end all hammock. The way I see it, I'll never know if I have that hammock until I've tried them all.

    I have tried them all. Or, have come very very close to it.

You are right about the net being a pain in the but to deploye and its pretty delicate too. I bought a Warbonnet Blackbird (WBBB) and have absolutely loved it. I wish I'd bought the WBBB first it would have saved me the money to receive the SBPro and to ship the it back. There is a devoted following for SBPros here but for big people I think a WBBB is a much Better choice!
    This is exactly the sort of feedback I was looking for. Thanks! I think I'm just going to go straight into the WBBB. I know I like it, I know it is comfortable, and it is a quality hammock.

    Thanks guys!

    Don't I know it. Yet that's not gonna stop me from continuing the hunt. It's too much fun playing with new gear to ever stop.
