    I don't get it. I have never had a problem with my UQ staying tight on my bridge, but I did make this Mod.

    They're talking specifically about the WB torso UQ; it fits quite a bit differently than other UQs (for now). It is designed to be used on the diagonal; this isn't a great match to the BMBH which is designed for a hanger to lie straight in line. I (personally) don't think the WB torso UQ will perform well under those conditions. At least, not as well as on hammocks that people will lay diagonally in. JMO.

    BillyBob,

    Great write-up! Extremely thorough.

    I recently picked up a used BMBH and WOW! I was actually thinking I may never "LOVE" hammocks, just like them....You know, the fiddle factor w/setup, some of the side sleeping issues, etc.

    But after trying this, I have a very comfortable, no-fuss bed now. Wish I bought one sooner.

    Thanks, FM, and I know what you mean. There are some stark differences between this hammock and others that take a little getting used to at first, but once you do, it is comfort city, at least for me! And there really is not much "fiddle factor". I don't bother with a ridge line. It is supposed to be 9"6" between outer rings, but for me, if I am anywhere in the ball park, that is good enough. Basically, I just pull it fairly tight, and then back off a few inches. ( or, if the net is on, I pull it till the net is tight, then back off a bit). That always seems to be good enough, and when I measure it will be with in a couple of inches either way of of the 9'6". I may add a RL anyway just for hanging things from.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
