    YES! I'm always reading the threads of newcomers and all the experts on here just bombard them with all the complicated things and leave them so confused! I can remember when I first got my Hennessy and watched the Hennessy website video of how to lash the ropes on the straps, over and over and over.... I'm a little slow! I still haven't figured out all this stuff.

    Yeah, probably a symptom of 'Hennessy Conditioning'. She probably just assumed that because the lay of the hammock is asymmetrical then the tie-outs must be too. For that matter, I think I remember Brandon saying that Tom even called it asymmetrical. Course, Brandon quickly corrected him.

    Just the beginning

    This is just the Initial Report. This will be followed in 2 months by a Field Report and two months after that a Long Term Report.

    BGT also has 3 testers for each piece of gear. There will be 2 more testers that will file their IR in the next week or so.

    Wow, I feel like an ignoramus!

    I wish my scientific research got this much interest!!! I had checked out this site before, but didn't have time to check through it for exactly how to do things. Plus playing around myself has always been my way! Thanks for the feedback though guys. I will definitely use the carabiners the right way this time.

    I didn't mean that the guylines were asymmetrical, I'm sorry if it came across that way. I only had the guylines like they were in the picture because I was on a wooden platform so there was nowhere for stakes. I wasn't using the netting anyway so I just tied them to each other through the bench running around the platform (they weren't long enough individually). By asymmetrical I meant the way it has a shelf and a footbox, and the way you lie in it off center, as I have only ever had the simple one-piece of material and two ropes types. I guess to you guys asymmetrical means something different?

    I always meant to get a hammock for backpacking but put it off because of money, and because I felt like there was too much research involved figuring out exactly what I wanted. Guess I was proved right on the latter! I'm off to TN tomorrow for a long weekend in the woods, so if anyone has other things I should know, let me know!

    Welcome Sophie!

    Glad you decided to join us. Sounds like you've already got the basics figured-out, now it's time for the fun stuff (quilts, weathershields, tarps, and fans are back too ). In case you haven't figured it out yet, 1.1 and 1.7 refer to the weight per square yard of the material. Happy Hanging!
