Hi, My name is adam, I'm new to the forum. I'm glad there are so many like minded individuals here. I've been sleeping in a Grand Trunk Double (originally purchased for camping) for about a month and 1/2 now, and its okay. I like it better than my bed, but after reading about so many different kinds of hammocks it seems a poor choice for a full-time sleeper. The grand trunk breaths well, however i fear sleeping in it as stretched it out. I've tried to re hang it at different angles to see if i can loosen it up any (i've got it about at about a 9 foot spread, 10.5 being its total length), none are comfortable, and tend to be awkward. I then rehung it at my regular length, and tried laying across is the opposite way i tend too, and it's strainful. It doesn't want to lay down straight like the other side does.
So my point being, its not a very good full time sleeper. I've heard great things about Mayan, and Brazilian, but without having tried either one, I have hesitations purchasing one without knowing how it feels. As far as i'm concern, a $200-$300 hammock, is nothing compared to a $500+ bed. I'm just looking for something with longevity. Im looking for people sleepfull time in either for some help in my purchase.
