    Any elaboration on the head spreader bar breaking on bigger folks.

    I'm 270ish and have a couple hangs in my DL WBRR and didn't notice any undue stress.

    Was the failure catastrophic or just bending or what?

    Was hang angle at play as well or could this happen with the recommended hang angle with us bigger guys?

    Are these beefier head end spreaders you mention available for aftermarket purchase? I didn't see them listed on the site.


    The WBRR is the most comfy hammock I've owned to date so I'd love to not wreck any of its parts accidentally

    they broke, not sure if there was signifigant bending first or not

    shoot me an email and we'll figure out how to swap up to the bigger pole, i'd certainly suggest it at 270
