Thank you, Sir! I've avoided giving this hammock much attention until you just messed it up for me!!! Couldn't you have lied to me?

I have a BB XLC dbl. 1.7 and a camo Superfly on order. The wait is killing me!
Take it easy,
+1 on what you've said. That footbox (and length for those that benefit from it) really bring it over the top for gathered-end hammocks. It's good stuff.
Honestly, though, I don't know which I like more. The XLC or your perfect-for-hammocks backyard. Every time I see your setup pictures, I feel more and more jealous! No hammock-worthy trees in my yard so I have to always fall back on the stand. It works but just isn't the same.

My forum name is Fish<><; I'm in the navy; and I hate sleeping on the ground. If I didn't need ground to walk on or measure resistance to, I think I could happily give it up.
I agree that the views are excellent, but do you find the amount of netting near the footbox odd? Evertime I laid in it barefoot I was glad that my toenails were trimmed, or they may have sliced through the bug netting.
Has anybody set up their new XLC w/o the netting or cover? I am just wondering how the lay is in traveler mode?
I am debating on the new XLC or a BIAS WWM.
