A couple months back I bought an 11 ft Streamliner hammock from SLD and it was nice, as other folks have recently posted. I did have to adjust the ridgeline a bit shorter than usual to get a really flat lay, but once that was done it was great. ...but I like to sit in my hammock and lounge sometimes, and the cat-cuts Streamliner was not very conducive to that so I asked Jared about it and proposed a solution to this. He got right on it and had it to me in like 5 days.
So basically, I just asked him to leave the cat cut from one side and do a knotty mod, but with the shock cord all the way through one side of the hammock. The material is also 4 inches wider and this one is still 11 ft long.
I got it and I really like it! The cat cut gives you a firm back to lean back on while in the sitting position, and the knotty mod stretches so that you can sit comfortably. You can lean back really hard and not fall backwards. I really like this feature.
I also feel like that I could lay in it flatter with less shoulder squeeze than the original model. I almost fell asleep on accident, so that was a really good sign. I also seemed to get a flatter lay by using a 1 ft continuous loop in the channel without larksheading it.
It is very well made and Jared was very eager to help me and make me happy with my product. The price was also great! I would definitely recommend working with this company.
I took some photos after work a few weeks ago, but they do not show the ridgeline. Pardon the quality, as I had already killed the battery in my camera and had to take them on my phone. (doh!) I will get better pics later.These were taken on the DeSoto Scout Trail on the West Fork of Little River.
If you have any questions about it, just give me a holla. It's late and I know I left out some info somewhere. I know that I never weighed the finished model before I added suspension.
