    looking to purchace a new hammock but dont know which one

    i have a GT skeeter beater pro but im not happy with it because of the high sides and i have a really hard time getting out of it. i have been told by HH that the HH safari will work and a WB BB double of some sort will hold my weight too "360lbs" but my problem is i cant find myself paying $200+ for only the hammock. what i am asking i know is a BIG favor but some of yall know me and if you dont just ask around "im a trustworthy guy" what im asking is if anyone has one of these hammocks that are just laying around that isnt thier main hammock and wouldnt mind shipping it to me to try out on the mid TN hang this 13-16 and send the reciet for the shipping i will pay for the shipping back first class and will give you a money order for your shipping to me. i am just so scared that i will pay for one of the hammocks most likely the HH safari and will not like it or it will not work/fit me right and im a full time student with verry limmited funds and will be paying for this hammock out of my refund check i get from college so i want to get it right the first time. and i PROMISE if ANYTHING happens to your equipment i will pay for either pay for the repair or replace it with a new one "your choice"
    thanks again for even considering this and helping me with my choice and if you have any question plzz pm me.

    thanks again and i hope this isnt against the form rules "i didnt see anything" but if this is plzz remove it and let me know

    PS the hammock needs to have a skeeter netting built in

    Contact Hogg Tyed. He is a big guy like you and I am sure he will be willing to share his thoughts. I believe he has a custom BB.

    It is. Not only is it well constructed, but its darn comfy!! Ive had the pleasure of trying alot of different hammocks, and in a gathered end design the Night Owl is the most comfortable for me.

    Although I cannot help you with the hammock, maybe I can give you advice. I have a ENO DN for one of my hammocks and it's rated for 400 lbs. You can find them for $30-60. If you have a sewing machine you can easily make one to fit your needs for less than $40 (double layer 1.9?) Both options should be a lot lighter on the wallet.
    Hope this helps or at least gives you some options..
    Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!

    i agree about marty i just spoke with him today actually because i just made about a $200 order from him for down and some sil for stuff sacks for my new diy UQ TQ and turtle tarp "lol oh yes i did i made a turtle tarp once its all sealed up ill have pics ive lived in appartments smaller than this lol" anyway i sopose i forgot to add to the post and ill make an edit because i want a skeeter net built into the hammock "i live in MO and skeeters will eat you alive in an hour" and thx for all the info guys i really appreciate it but im back to buying something without knowing it will fit and that is what im worried about because i got one shot to get it right and im still hoping that there might be someone that hasnt read this thread yet that might have a HH safari laying around that i could try out because i think that it may be my best choice for a heavy duty hammock but im am open to ideas. as far as a diy im probably going to make me one for fun but i need something that i can count on for some fall/winter hangs i have comming up.
    thanks again for everyones help and ideas
