I like taco's
Hell I own 5 hammocks and 2 sets of insulation but I had a better idea of my needs in the get go, bought them then bought stuff that interested me. This time around not so much haha. I have what I need now I want help, of a kind, to find stuff I'm interested in!

Well.. it is pretty much a win-win here... Many choices of top of the line gear..
I might suggest paying closer attention to site selection though, warmth and dry factors....not to mention widow makers, that will ruin even the toughest of tarps and lives for that matter......Good luck..
We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..
When I saw this thread, my first instinct was "don't feed the trolls," but if you really want an opinion, I've used my hennessy sil hex tarp for 5 years without any tears. Like NCPatrick, my sealing tape peeled off, but that was after I re-coated the material. Nothing a few minutes with silicone caulk couldn't fix.
That, by the way, is a huge point in sil's favor--re-coating is not an option with urethane-coated fabric.
My JRB 11x10 has served me well over the past 3 years also. I like it because I can close the ends to block wind in winter. Recently I added another Grizz beak to my gear so I can now "close the doors" on my hex as well.
Anyway, use what you like and like what you use. Feel free to just ask a gear question. You don't need to trick anyone around here into giving you information. In fact, if you do it much you may find it backfires.
"I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver
