    Besides length, how do you tell the difference between Tx-250 and TX-150?

    I know the 250 is longer but since there are no markings on the hammocks in question, is there another way to tell them a part? Does the foot end have some construction difference that can show the difference? Thanks.

    Of the two Clarks that I have had, each has been marked with a black felt tip type marker. The marking has been on the flap of the smallest stuff sack. Other than that, I can see no indication of size, model, or date of manufacture. All of which would be nice to have.
    And besides, on my latest Clark, just received, brand new - the marking is wrong. It is marked as an NX when in fact, it is a TX

    As far as construction, the 150 and the 250 should be identical except for size.

    Pockets are smaller on the 150.

    The straps that form winglets to accept rods are longer on the 150 if the bed is still a few inches narrower. That's because the rods are the same length.

    I measured the hammock with it being taut and it was ~108.5 inches. I assume I should have it stretch all the way when I measure?

    Do you have the measurements of the smaller pockets?

    Well, you made me look.
    My 250, on the floor, with ends cinched, is 103". With suspension removed, laid out in a rectangle, it is 48" x 107".
    The 150 would be several inches shorter.
    You definitely have the 250.

    I was going thru the same thing with my new NX 250...the answer from Clark was that the centerline seam at the foot end indicates the 250, the 150 has no seam.

    Better to not be subtle. I have a silver anodized carbiner at the foot end of an NX and a gold-anozided one of the same maker at the head end. Plain as gold v silver in daylight.

    Well, I''m doing better than 50/50 chance in setting up in dim light with the head end correctly found using that distinction in color, but not a lot........ <smile>

    I stuff the foot end first so the head end will come out first. I also have a yellow Whoopie for the head, and a blue Whoopie for the foot .

    How I stuff the hammock the head end always comes out first. I also use blue and orange whoopies or continuous loops on all my hammocks. The blue is always at the head and orange is at the foot end.
