    Help with mod

    I just bought my first Hammock and it is a Hennessy I would like to know if any of you have the 2QZQ mods, which one you had done and why? I am very new to the hammock hanging, I have been learning a lot for y'all.
    Thanks Dan

    I have not done it yet but I am planning on a mod 1 soon. Also talking over a set of doors on one end of my hex tarp. I have two issues. One is adjusting things when I am in the Hammock and the other is getting to the inside head end easily from the outside.

    I like the bottom entry and I do not wish to get rid of the bug net. If I want a hammock with no net I have made several in the process of figuring out hammocks so I will use something else.

    I got the Mod 4. Its nice to be able to remove the net when just lounging on a nice day, also lets you get in the hammock from either side.
    I also kept the bottom entry

    I'm debating between Mod 2 and Mod 4 myself.

    Not sure if the extra zippers and putting it in a peak bag instead of just rolling/tying it up is worth the extra money or not yet.

    Also figuring that I'm going to keep the velcro entry as well. I like the ability to get into the hammock without brushing up against the underside of the tarp when it's slung low to deal with the weather.

    mod 4 for me.

    if the net is up, you get the peak bag for additional storage.

    roll it, tuck it away for a fast topless hammock.

    add a 3rd zipper to reach out of the netted hmmk and grab items without
    completely unzipping.

    Dannytoo,

    If the cost isn't the main issue...you will be able to do all the zipper configurations with a mod #4. And getting the triple pulls on both sides will give you the best of the best. ZQ

    Cost is always an issue, but if the product is worth the price then it is a money well spent.

    ZQ once the mods are completed will the HH go back into the original stuff sack?

    Agreed...cost is always an issue! I had said...if cost isn't the main issue! It comes down to....do you want the netting completely off you and stowed at the foot end...thus completely topless...you can have a mod 2 and roll the netting to your right or left lower side...little less $$...or if a mod 3 will be great for you then even less $$.
