    KAQ suspension on NX-250?

    I've finally upgraded my SBPro to a NX-250

    Got it late last night and tried it out this AM. It rocks. A different lay than the SB but I really like the poles/bug net setup. I'm ready for it to get cold to try out the weathershield

    Question: I've got a KAQ UQ and am trying to figure out how best to hang it on the Clark. Any suggestions?

    I am planning on swapping out the rope on the Clark to the rings/straps on my SBPro...

    Thanks!
    Jim

    I have the AIO system from Whoopieslings and I just connect the UQ biners to the rings near the hammock on the AIO system. Works great.

    If the 250 is like the 200 there should be should be small loops of grossgrain on each side of the entrance of the hammock and the head and foot end as well. These are in the perfect location to line up with the grossgrain loops on the KAQ New River UQ. Then you just hang the head and foot end of the KAQ from the hammock suspension. See the attached photo of my NX-200.

    I do believe there are loops on the side. How do you connect them? Mini biners??

    Sorry for taking so long to respond. Yeah, mini beiners are the way to go IMHO. They work for very well for me. If you need any close up shots send me a pm and I will see if I can get them off the house computer tonight.

    Thanks! I'm headed out Friday so will throw some in my bag and experiment in the field

    Headed to the mtns in VA. Lows might dip into the upper 50's this weekend so it'll be a good test!
