    Shug - If it's anywhere near as comfortable as the Light Owl, you will have a new favorite hammock.

    WV - The headbox/footbox is adjustable, and the hammock should "sit" just fine with the boxes "loosened" all the way. My Light Owl "sits" like a dream, especially with that Gargoyle footrest.

The high walls do block some of the views but you don't have to tension them until you are ready to turn in. Because if it's length and lay I could sleep on my stomach! Never could do that except in a bridge. Most of my UQs seemed to fit it well except for the Peapod. Because of the high wall I didn't think it would work well.

    The foot box was nice in that it kept my feet frOm popping out as they tend to do with some of my other netless hammocks. The head box nicely kept the excess fabric off my face. I think this Is my new favorite netless!

    Enjoy yours. I look forward to seeing you in it!

    S
    Thanks for the intel. I excited.

    Thank goodness. Been a while for a new hammy for me.

    Hope you enjoy that snipe and all it has to offer. The folks at WL make some nice gear. Like a few other HF members, since WL is local I go by their shop and bug them every so often! Thats bad on the wallet......
    You really now have given me idea.......

    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Congrats! New gear is a beautiful thing. Man, have been eyeing up that Snipe, seems as though everyone who has a WL hammock really likes them. Would really like a lightweight single for daytripping, can't wait to hear how you like it.

    Cheers

    I received my snipe yesterday. Couldn't pass up Marty's sale. I absolutely love it.
    The single layer 1.5 feels wonderful. Just the right amount of stretch for my 185#

    Tip: Since the snipe has shock cord on one side for your feet and opposite side for the head if one wants to lay head left or head right just flip the hammock over for your prefer lay. Great hammock, 0 calf pressure.

    Does it come with Snipeline Suspension or the Nessie Sling?

    If they did one in all black they could call it the Snape, or any longer it could be the "Severe US Snape".

    I'm gonna run get my snipe gun (I keep it in the closet next to my mime gun).

    Big Oops


    I had never heard of the Snipe before. Following the thread I thought it was a spoof (a la Snipe hunting). Let's pretend this never happened.

    I still like calling the RL a 'Snipeline'.
