    That's totally reasonable. Any issues with stretch on the 1.1?

    So far so good. But I don't think I ever saw any issues with my 1.1 WBBB before this either.

    I was as snug as a dude hanging in a hammock who has a beer, an issue of Fangoria and a buddy cooking up some food. That is to say the hammock was comfy, didn't feel overly stretchy, at least to me and I had a great time sleeping in it, or just relaxing in the afternoon with a magazine and a beer
    When it seems like the night will last forever
    And there's nothing left to do but count the years
    When the strings of my heart start to sever
    And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears
    I will walk alone by the black muddy river
    And dream me a dream of my own

    Noob here and doing some research for my first hang. Your report sounds great. This is the first that I have heard of this particular hammock and am impressed that you would prefer it to the WBBB witch was my first thought to purchase.

    If you got the VIP route let me know, I'll be there if the band line-up is worth it.

    I enjoyed my WBBB, when I had it, but I always felt like I just couldn't just the right spot where my body would get the best rest.

    I'm a normal size dude: 5' 11" and fluctuate between 175 and 185lbs.

    My big suggestion is to be able to try them out in person if you get the chance. Most of the hammocks will have very similar feels and lays, but there will be some key features that just make it for you, and the DB was that way for me. I highly recommend one, but that doesn't mean it'll be perfect for you, but you can be **** sure you'll find someone that will buy it off you if you don't like it.
