    I lay with my head on the left and my legs to the right.

    Other than the attached bugnet, I like the HH. I am waiting on fabric to come in the mail to make a homemade asym hammock. I really like the way the asym feels.

    What do you have against HH neo?
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Do you sleep down the middle of your hammock or do you sleep on a diagonal?

    Neo,

    Put you head to the left and you feet to the right....Oh yeah, open your mind for a fair test....

    You were happy for years with you non asym HHBUL....You should find this to be comfortable also...thousands of others find it comfortable....

    Yours is the only posting of the HH rope failure that I've read.... How much do you weigh? Did the line have any extra knots in it ? ... every fishermand and climber knows that knots reduce the breaking strength of lines... Also when you inspected the failure was it smooth or rough? Is it possible the break was caused by some nick or snag... Those spectra lines are really strong...most report they have exceeded the rated capacity without issue.

    Why do you have to lay in a hammock diagonally? can you not lay straight?

    Is it like that in all hammocks?

    Yep - if you lay straight, your body will be shaped like a banana and you'll wake up with a sore back and sore knees. Laying diagonal, the fabric shapes to you and your head and feet drop lower so you're almost flat. Much more comfortable for most folks.
    “Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
