    WTB - Eureka Chrysalis Hammock System

    I saw this system and want to try it out. I have a BMBH but not sure I like it. I have wanted to try the Eureka Chrysalis, and thought someone may have one they are not using and want to sell reasonably. I can get a new one online for $159 but was hoping for a better deal since I don't know if I will like it. I know it is a heavy set-up, but I figure with new suspension and some tweaking I can get the weight down for at least car camping or short hikes.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    I found the BMBH had too much shoulder squeeze, and I'm pretty slender. I guess my Hennesseys spoiled me for a spacious lay. I may just need to tweek the BMBH some more to get it right. I was actually just very curious about the Chrysalis and I think it looks cool. I may not like it, so that is why I don't want to pay too much for one, just to check it out.
    Thank you for the posts.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    Thank you for your info

    Thank you all for the info. I will try the air pad and see if that helps. I figured I needed to do some more tweaking. I guess I will have to try some tweaking this weekend. Hopefully I won't get rained out...
    Happy Hangin!!!
