    11' Blackbird?

    I read WB will offer it's new XLC in a 10' version. Is there any chance that WB will offer a 11' Blackbird?

    The XLC can be ordered with net only making it a blackbird with a removable net in 11'.

    I'm interested in the zipper configuration found on the (traditional) blackbird, 2 on one side.

    yea or nay?

    Actually, I contacted WB last year about this. Mr. WB was reluctant to offer custom services at the time. Things might have changed since then. Has anyone requested this kind of custom work from WB in the recent past? Specifically an 11' traditional BB?

    straight from brandon's mouth (fingers?) just yesterday:

    "we could make the same hammock (11') but made like the standard blackbird with zipper on one side only and non-removable top
