    Chair sinking in the mud?

    Last time we were out we all had to put the feet of our chairs on some flat rocks. This sucks. So I came up with this.
    Just slid them on where the small ones were and no more sinking unless it's like quicksand.
    And only one ounce each.

    Thanks. I just ordered a Helinox chair and had seen the tennis ball mod. Now I have two ideas to think about.

    I haven't seen the tennis ball mod. Does it hold up? Seems like the legs would just push thru the thin rubber.

    My experience is that the tennis balls hold up fine. However, if you have a large dog that likes to play chase with tennis balls, you might have a problem.

    I like it, I have the same issue with my nano chair. But I might try pvc feet instead. Maybe lighter but won't absord any moisture.
    Directionally challenged...comicly so.

    Don't know what kind of wood but it's light and pretty hard, Was a broom handle off a good straw broom at one time. 1 inch diameter.
