Has anyone try using 0.6" dia aluminum tubing as spreader bar? does curve spreader bar preventing the hammock from flipping over? would the tubing has more strength with more sections or less sections? if i were to bend the aluminum tubing, would the pulling force on the hammock bend the tubing even more?
Below is my first prototype on the redesign of hammock tent.
i want to figure out some of the engineer and weight aspect before I move forward with the design. Thanks!
