    Warbonnet bridge?

    I thought I remembered reading about a warbonnet bridge that would be coming out? Is my memory incorrect?

    It's like Bigfoot. A lot of people have heard about it, a few said they may have seen it, but no one has pics or know for sure what they saw and a lot of people are interested in seeing one.
    Experts are the ones who think they know everything. Geniuses are the ones who know they don't.

    Gather round your hearts the tinder,
    lay the oak and pine together,
    kindle all that is within you with a warm and cheerful spirit.

    Cannibal was a test dummy for an earlier R&D version. I PMed Brandon about the ETA of the finished one and he replied that it was on the back burner due to moving WB to a new spot. Brandon must be busier than a one legged man in a sack race anyway. Oddly enough this thread popped up as I was watching Shugs new video release (BRAVO Shug BTW!!) on his Grizz Bridge and thought a bridge hammock just might be the answer to my wife's outside hammock comfort issues.

    So Brandon what is the skinny? I wonder if your new creation will allow for some of us more than 250lb types (Judy will not always be using it), is it wider & longer etc, bug net? Maybe just a peek into your mysterious R&D mind?

    I will say this, Brandon has been exceptionally busy since moving both his shop and his home to Evergreen. The WB bridge still exists and he still finds time to tinker with it a bit. But, he is having to hire a couple of new people and get them trained the Warbonnet-way. His standards are very high, so that alone is probably eating much of his time.

    Believe me, I have been a pest about the bridge he came up with and won't relent until one lives in my gear room. But right now, getting the rest of his arsenal back in stock is his priority. When you start seeing the wait-times come down to a few days, or everything lists as "in stock" on the website, you might want to start saving pennies cause I bet the bridge won't be too far behind.

    Bump for an eagerly awaited WB release.

    Any progress Brandon? Maybe even an option with industrial strength cross bars for us full figured fellas and a few more inches for those of us that are taller than the norm (whatever that is). I'd pester (read; whine/beg/snivel) the professor for a custom one but he might make me take a pop math quiz that I would certainly fail.
