    I love my Vario stand. Can easily move from sun to shade or vice versa. The ENO singlenest is my go-to hammock for a nap. But I just have to have whoopie slings on it

    Has anyone pushed this stand near the suggested weight limit of 350lbs? I am looking for a stand that my wife and I can use together.
    Thanks!

    I just ordered one of these stands from Amazon! Can't wait. I will probably set it up in my spare bedroom untill spring, then it will go out in the yard. Hanging indoors looks like a lot of fun.

    just realized this was an old thread.

    NOTE EVERYBODY: the manufacturer's photos in the OP show the knobs on the top (ie right underneath your back!).

    Make sure you get the improved version that has the knobs on the side, which, in fact, is what the OP's photos show.

    This makes a huge difference, especially in how low the hammock can sag before your back is sitting on those knobs.

    I weigh a bit less than 75 lbs less than that 350 and my Vario does not inspire confidence to go much over 300. Could be wrong but I would not want to test it and find out.
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    i have the older version with the knobs on top .....i have never actually used the knobs...? my wieght in the hammock prevents the stand from moving.....even without weight, i dont think the stand will move.....to test this just get up in the middle of the night and kick the stand foot as you walk by in the dark...!

    it doesnt move and man does it hurt....!

    I Like the Stand from what I could see, although I have a Question that relating
    to the use of Clark's Nx-200 Jungle Hammock with this Stand.
    #1. The Hammock stand height max's out at 57 inches ( 4 ft. 9 inches ) . I believed this is kinda low for the Height.
    Although the Length can be extented to 180 inches ( 15 ft. ).. which is good.
    #2. The Clark's Hammock Tarp is 127 inches long ( 10 ft. 7 inches), which is find.
    But now the height is questionable.

    Just curious, if I would be to Low to the Ground?...

    Appreicate your respond, Thank You

    I was thinking of getting this stand for indoor use and now I'm considering putting some glow in the dark stickers on the feet to help protect my feet!

    Hey, I wanted to pull this thread up from the deep again with a price update. Amazon has these now for $99 with free shipping.
