    If you don't mind the weight, I suggest the HH Safari. It's huge, easy to set up with the built in ridgeline, and the asym tie-outs give a very flat lay. I'm 6'2" 225# and can sleep on my side or stomach with plenty of room to spare.

    Are you looking for something else like your eno, or are you looking for something with bug net. There are a lot options. One of the most popular is the Warbonnet Blackbird. The 1.7oz double layer is fine for your size. There are options from Tree to Tree Trail Gear and Wilderness Logics.

    PapaSmurf with Dream Hammocks is in the process of making some really big ones.

    well My Eno is still in good condition except the suspension so I am going to replace it with some whoopies. but I am looking for something a little different and in cause i have another person who wants to camp but doesn't have a hammock or what not. I figured I get the new toy and oldies can be used by the new comer.. lol so I have looked at that one. and i would like to be able to see one in person. as well before i pay that amount for it. but who knows i might feel froggy this pay day.

    Check out Wilderness logics 11 ft hammock,,its length gives you a most excellent sweet spot of a lay. And you get the whoopies and tree slings with each hammock you buy.

    The whoopies will definitely hold you, not to worry.
    It's tough to be able to try a hammock before you buy unless you come out in the woods with some fellow forum members for a hiking trip. That's part of the draw for the big annual group hangs - lots of hammocks to try.

    As you know, a few of us are going to Lake Wales Ridge state forest this weekend and next month in the Richloam section of the Withilacoochee forest. Bring your ENO and try out some hammocks! If you don't have a bugnet for the ENO, just let me know and I'll bring one.
