    Already did Nutty. I put an Adjustable Ridgeline with a UCR made of Dynaglide.

    I've built 3 WBBB clones and the latest one with Dutch's new Argon 1.6 Rip-Stop Nylon. He's got it on sale right now for $4.25 a yard. Weight rating on that Argon 1.6 is 275 pounds. so if you are looking to make the lightest possible hammock for yourself and want to hang with confidence, try that.

    Here are the specs of that material:
    - 1.6 ounce per square yard
    - 60 inches wide
    - 40 denier nylon
    - 75 grams per linear yard!
    - weight rating <= 275 pounds

    BTW, this is a great complement material to Dutch's 1.06 Argon SilNylon to make your tarp from. The two look great together and for my latest WBBB made from this Argon 1.6, I used the breathable Argon 1.6 for the main gathered hammock portion and left over strips of the 1.06 Argon SilNylon for the footbox/shelf/1/3 of the front 8" strip, the rest being noseeum.
