    This talk of weak cords make me think of testing the breaking strengh. The only thing I cam come up with is tieing one end to a fixed object and pulling it behind my car.

    I don't think your Mitsubishi has enough torque to break spectra! (god..I'm cracking myself up today!)

    Yep - as one end comes whipping through your back windows...real fun for those of us downloading the video from YouTube!!

    Neo, did the same side of the Scout break twice or was it both sides once. It may have been a defect in the cord on that Hammock. Set up low to the ground, then you and your wife get in. When it doesn't break I think you will feel more comfortable.
    I have a ULBA and I love it. Especially now that the winter is coming on. A little cold usually scares off most campers here.
