    Picked up my SB DL, question about spreader bars

    Drove down and picked up my Switchback DL and CatCut tarp and got home in time to set it up and play a bit with it before some thunderstorms rolled in.

    Man this is one sweet hammock, extremely comfortable and has all the features I've been wanting. One of the best features is the ability to use spreader bars to make the hammock really feel spacious.

    Ive searched this forum and it looks like 22" is the correct spreader bar length, is this correct?
    If 22" is good, I'm going to pick up a set of these

    Am I on the right track?

    Thanks

    Are you talking about a bar for the net?

    Yes, I'm talking about the bug net spreaderbar.
    Took a quick measurement and the tabs measure approx 22" across. That would be a straight spreader bar with no bow in it.
    I'm guessing the only advantage of a bowed spread bar is that it opens up a bit more space?

    Thanks Sandy. I don't think Dale is selling the bars anymore, but I'll try asking him.
