    Last night I had the same thought as I crawled into my Peapod for the 6th night in a row. I wished the hammock was a Blackbird.

    I think I should get the prototype for bringing the idea to the forum

    Question on the footbox: What are the dimensions of the triangle you added to your hammock? From what I can tell from the pic, it looks like a right-triangle, with the short edges about 26 inches...

    I guess I'm off to Walmart at my next opportunity to get the materials for my 3rd hammock... I guess this is an addiction...

    i'd have to have a good idea that they'd sell well before i'd be willing to come out with a new product..
    C'mon......they'll sell!!I bet you'll sell more than the Traveller. I'll buy one right now

    That would be hard to understand. The Traveler is lighter, would have the *same* lay, and be less bulky. I honestly don't miss the shelf when I use my Traveler(s).
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    it's not a triangle really, sort of but it's connected to the shelf so it is a bit of an hourglass shape

    the footbox version would be nice addition to my in door collection.
    The BB to me is the MOST comfortable hammock I own but I cant watch TV well or work on the computer thru the net
    I'd get in line for one of these Brandon, assuming you got comfortable with the design

    If it came in 1.7 dbl, I'd also consider one. We obviously know it can be done by seeing a picture of it, now it just takes the ability to mass produce them. I also feel that they would sell better than the Traveller. Sure the Traveller is lighter, but for an extra 4-5 oz, I'm sure people would sacrifice it for the footbox and shelf.

    BTW... My vote goes for the Free Bird... spot on!
