    Swing Springs used in Hammock suspension

    Hi Guys, I saw this "Swing Spring" on "The Hammock Company" website. Has anyone ever used these springs on the ends of the hammock? the claim is that because the spring gives alittle, the hang is more natural.

    I have something similar on my front porch swing and they are very nice. Not sure how I would like them on the hammock.

    Neat idea for a backyard hang. I might have to try it!
    (However, I doubt they would ever make it into my backpack...)

    Hi!
    I'm an employee at DesignedForOutdoors.com!
    Using a swing spring on a hammock has been done before!
    It will add a little bounce but be sure there is no jumping in the hammock because the springs and hammock aren't made for that type of use!
    It will be a matter of personal opinion as to how the spring feels but it may be worth a try!

    Good luck & Relax..
