    It isn't about changing opinions but rather it is about sharing experiences.

    This thread hasn't been a Claytor bashing thread. People have shared a wide variety of experiences in response to the OP.

    People sharing both good and bad experiences with a hammock seller and that seller's products can only increase the knowledge of forum participants.

    That's a good thing isn't it?

    Yes!

    If I decide I want to order another, or recommend for a friend, one of my all time favorite hammocks- the Claytor No Net, possible customer service problems need to be added to the equation. I might well risk it any way just to get a hammock that works so dang well in general and with a Speer Pea Pod in particular and at such a great price. But I would want to know about any possible problems going in.

    Some are super picky. Many are great customers. If someone can't live with/repair a one foot frenge or live with a few needle marks in nylon fabric I can't imagine the issues they would encounter sleeping in the woods for a night.

    Where'd he go?

    Lets see some pictures.

    Yep, that is a big change, think I paid $15. Or actually, did $45 include shipping? Not sure, but it was far from $40. So there is no price advantage now compared to other hammocks of this type. Still, I would consider this hammock if I needed one, as it works better with my PeaPod than any thing I have tried, I think mainly due to it's narrow width. My WL Light Owl/WB BB or even my Speer are not as slick as with a Pea Pod as the Claytor. Plus the Claytor has been, for me, a really comfy hammock. Rarely any calf pressure or knee problems, good side comfort legs straight or fetal. 23 oz with stock suspension and double layer, less sag/stretch than any other of my hammocks, and least sensitive to amount of or lack of sag- pulled fairly tight or hung like a big banana, good to go. Unlike some of my hammocks where the RL length seems so critical. And all at only 10 feet long.

    So, $80 now with shipping compared to $75 ( + shipping ) for a Traveler. I'd get the Traveler every time, Unless:
    1: I thought the NN would be significantly more comfortable. Never tried the highly rated Traveler, but the NN is near the top for me.
    2: I was looking for the best hammock for use with my Pea Pod. Though, for all I know, the Traveler would work just as good. But it is a good bit wider.

    But again, perceived customer service would play a part in any such decision. But without a specific desire for the No Net, I would go with Brandon, a young man - an American manufacturer - who communicates with this forum.

    fifteen bucks ???? when did you get it ....the 60's ????

    i kno just what your saying ...i got a few nonets...the size and shape is what makes it float...not the suspension...i did my own redesign on that...and it cost more than the hammock itself... but i liked it..its original , and it worked.

    but the reality is, its an easy design to DIY .. i'm sew machine illiterate , or i might try..but i gave up redheads and moved on to brunettes

    Not taken the wrong way but I wish,......Nope, thats Clint Eastwood from the movies. That ones from Hang em High.

    I just like his hammocks (and a good deal). I liked my first one so much I have two spares in case one gets lost, stolen, or catches on fire. I just mean if I can get past the crappy suspension and replace it, a few wayward freys and needle holes in nylon wouldn't bother me. Then again I get a kick out of seeing a pair of sneekers hanging from a power line.

    But I might start a fan club.

    Let's see some pictures of the issues.

    I'm going to send tom a check for $147 for a Jungle mosquito hammock and fly. I know it isn't the "perfect" amount, because he really wants $150 + $30 for shipping, but hey, what's a little difference from perfect.
