My name is Bob, I live in the Sacramento, Ca. area and I recently bought a used Clark Jungle Hammock (without doing any research before hand). I set it up in the back yard and it's very comfortable but I made the assumption that all hammocks were lightweight. It's not, so I'm probably going to resell it and get a lightweight model. I have done a bit of reading here and was looking at the warrbonnet traveler because it's my understanding that the traveler is the same as the blackbird but if it's not buggy you can leave the net off? Anyway what's making me hesitate on the sale is the size of the thing. Website says that it will handle a person up to 6'-8". That seems like a lot of unnecessary material/weight for someone my size. So I thought I ask for suggestions from the forum based on my size and target of a good compromise between weight and comfort? Maybe the extra material isn't a big deal and I'll just get the WB? Any thoughts about the "traveler" VS the "Blackbird" Other suggestions?
Thanks very much,
