    He must be new to hammocks like we all were at one time.

    Rope or mesh hammocks tend to be a an open weave hammock (think fish net). Tend to be heavy and not comfortable for camping.

    Camping hammocks tend to be made of fabric like ripstop nylon. Very lightweight.

    Never seen a wooden hammock.

    Yea we mostly use the fabric hammocks with gathered end with a type of cordage suspension. With you apparently being new to hammocks and we all were at one point like gunner said, I would recommend watching SHUGS how to videos on youtube. Very informative and will answer most of you question and save you a lot of frustration;

    That's okay. You can learn a lot on the forum and watching videos, but talking to people in person and seeing their hammock setups is the best way to add to what you've learned. We have a bunch of HF members in Britain.
