    My WBBB dream hammock

    I have and love my WBBB but really like the new XLC. If Brandon made a 10 foot version in a single layer 1.9 Multicam with a 1.1 black topcover and .7 oz Ultralight No-see-um It would be my dream hammock. It would be everything I would ever want in a hammock. New name though (BBC) but that already taken Someday maybe, someday

    Seems there are some real requests for a 10ft BB/XLC? any reason why you feel a 10ft over your current 11 is better?

    I'm 6'1 and have made many 11 foot hammock and I have found no real benefits of the extra length. I actually feel shorter is more comfortable. Also the 11 foot hammocks are pushin the length of my tarps for coverage. I made an 8 foot for my 5 year old and that is really comfy, go figure.

    I know this is probably a dumb question but what does XLC stand for in the new hammock? How is it different from the normal BB?

    Wow, this is the first time I have heard anyone say that. I'm 6'-5" and the new XLC is by far, more comfortable than a regular Blackbird for me.

    Just goes to show, different strokes for different folks
