    Hiking pole collapsed on me...

    Well I gave the old hiking pole a try last night and unfortunately it collapsed on me. Even though I tightened as best I could, it slipped from about 31" to about 27" which wasn't a real big deal but it allowed my UQ to loosen up and created a slight air gap. I think the safest bet is to purchase a set of JRB poles for the BMBH as suggested by my good friend fullcount. This will also ensure that my poles are always available for use in setting up my tarp if needed. I'll let you know how that turns out...

    What tarp is that? Clarks?

    I am going to sell my WBBB but I have the WB Superfly with the attachable doors (they no longer sell that). Should I keep the Superfly?

    I own a NX 150. I feel squished in it. It rubs on both of my shoulders, so I gave it to the mrs. I was going to get a 250 untill I saw this new flex180. Your mods are genious. So now what to buy? I cannot decide. Lil help?

    I like this mod =)
    I thought, maybe I could use a similar mod to this one at the NX-250 if it doesn't feel comfortable to me by hanging it in the normal way.

    (Just ordered it one hour ago - it's my first hammock)

    I have a DIY version of the flex and find it really "tippy" when connected to two trees but i usually sleep in one bed with my gear in the other dont know if that would affect it have you noticed any instability?

    'bout that hmmk that is a fer-two:

    Compared to even the fault I find in the dark 3rd pic, the interior you didn't bring in stage lighting to light properly, I'd say this project is

    !! severely under-exposed !!


    Which is to say: Terrific work I hope you will write up in the DIY section. This is a long way from a re-purposed table-cloth, to say the least.
