    Lightbulb GrandTrunk how are they?

    Hey all so tonight for the first time I heard of a Hammock called GrandTrunk. Now I am getting ready to buy a eno and was wondering, do you guiys think I should take a look at them before I run off and buy a eno? I know nothing about them. Can you fill me in?

    Ya I have both. I have a ENO DN and a GT hybrid. They'er both good but I like the GT.

    I have an eno single, but I just ordered my WBBB so I think the eno might be going in the closet for guest hangers. My brother bought the GT Skeeter Beeter. It's a great hammock, but you might have to make some modifications to the suspension system to get it up to snuff... but that's a whole 'nother thread.

    I bought the GT Skeeter Beeter last year as my first hammock. Holding up fine so far but I don't get out a lot. Like JayBow says - you'll want to tweak the suspension but that's probably true for a lot of hammocks that are purchased.

    Grand Trunk is solid. They are as good as just about anyone else. My wife uses the Skeeter Beeter UL, and I've got a Nano7. Yeah, you probably need to modify some things, but there aren't any hammocks that I've bought so far that I haven't modified.

    I have the GT SBPro and their Nano7. I love them both took me awhile to get used to the Nano7 being so much more narrow than my SBPro. They are an awesome company with superb customer service.

    Grand Trunk and ENO are almost the same. You could buy one of each and test them yourself, sell or return the one you don't like. Or keep 'em both.

    I have both...they are all but indistinguishable. Both, very comfy.

    My sense is that GT is better with customer service, but that's just me.
