    It is the point in winter to think of getting gear.

    Thinking of portable hammock stands.

    This thread is informative for those thinking of buying and fun for those just dreaming.


    A mid-winter bump !

    Thanks for the video. Good modifications.

    Would Dutch make titanium pieces to replace those red plastic things?

    I wonder would the stand work with the WBRR hammock since I feel like Bridge hammocks require lower height compare to gather hammock. Any opinions?

    I have the stand on the way and I will be sure to report back.

    Has anyone figured out the length of the centerline when used with the Blackbird? (as illustrated in the recommended modifications Derek made?) I know it needs to be a little longer because the BB ridge line has too much sag when its set up with the current lines.

    Ive been tinkering all afternoon without success

    Try about 55" for the centerline. The 54" struts lean at a 65 degree angle and the BB has a 100" ridgeline. That leaves 55" between the struts on the ground. However, if you have continuous loops or something on the ends of the BB, add the length of those to the centerline.

    Perhaps you want to make it a whoopie sling so you can fine tune it. You could also mark the appropriate lengths on the whoopie for several different hammocks.

    Thank you Mike… great idea about the whoopee sling as I was thinking I would still like to use the open hammock that came with the kit.

    I agree with georgemaung that titanium replacement rings would be great to replace the plastic ones. A perfect job for Dutch.

    I wanted to dredge this thread back up and to see how these have been holding up and if people still recomend them?

    Also, regarding "I agree with georgemaung that titanium replacement rings would be great to replace the plastic ones. A perfect job for Dutch. "

    Some of the new plastics are stronger and lighter than titanim, aluminum, steel, ... You could end up with something heavier and/or weaker than the original if made with titanium.
    A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.

    My two are holding up fine. My wife & I use them in the local park for lounging by the lake with a good book.
