let me start out by thanking all of the mods and contributors here, I have been lurking for a few weeks now and feel like I have effectively downloaded the consciousness of the hammocking community...
With this new found knowledge, I made the decision today and placed an order for a Blackbird double 1.7 w/ web and rings, and a MacCat Ultra.
As of today, it sounds like Brandon is about 3-4 weeks out on the above.
Here's the top secret info... and you didn't hear it from me .
The vendor that he has been buying his gray material from is behind and he had picked up some black for a "future project". He sounded willing to make my BB in black if I wanted (I actually want the gray lol). We did not discuss price, so it may cost him a bit more in black, but for all of you who have been clamoring for a black BB, shoot him an e-mail, and strike while the iron is hot.
Thanks again to the mods for making the forum available.
