That was really fast for a custom job.
    Your welcome, and Thank You! We're slowly catching up from when I was out of pocket. Hopefully back to normal by middle of next week.

    Hope you enjoy it!

    Hung it on the porch, yesterday. Super comfy. Thermarest didn't move. I'll wait til my next trip to give the full review. But, so far......Awesome! Just what I was looking for.

    One question: I was getting shocked like crazy. Will this go away? Or, do I need some static guard or something?

    Every time you lay in a BIAS hammock you will be shocked and there is nothing you can do about it!!
    But that because you can't believe how comfortable they are..

    I could offer a long answer, but the short one is that we've seen static in the Weight Weenie. The material is very smooth and slips/slides together to create a static charge. The moister the air, the less it happens. The less the temperature differential between the hammock and the climate, the less it happens. But if you're out on a cold, dry day and you get out of a warm, snuggly hammock, expect static. Likewise, if you take it outside on a hot day from inside where it is cold from air conditioning (especially if it's dry outside), you may feel static.

    Under "normal" conditions, this isn't much of an issue, but you're a hammock camper, so there are no "normal" conditions. Shane and I first hung a WW hammock on a dry winter day and we noticed it was "staticky." The issue happened so infrequently after that, we forgot about it.

    Thanks. You had it right. Dry super hot day (like 105 degrees), came out from the A/C. I've noticed it in my Byer, too.

    I run a print shop and can definitely testify to the effect temp and dryness of air will have on paper (much less a poly fabric). It should subside before long.

    Came home and found a box from TN in the mailbox!!!
    Can't hang it until maybe Sunday, which will give me time to figure out how to use the Whoopies.
    Thanks Brian!
