    New (to me) WBBB dbl 1.7

    I just received my "new" Black Bird from a fellow forum member. After a quick setup (the cinch buckle system is amazingly simple) and test lay, I don't know that I will ever be able to use my new Hennessy Expedition. Just the feel after a few minutes in the WBBB has me hooked...can't say the same after a one nighter in the Hennessy.

    Now to plan some trips!

    Congrats! I feel the same way about the BB. That footbox, construction and general design is the best I've found in any gathered-end hammock (for my style). Good stuff.

    Glad you are enjoying the BB!

    I have yet to try a Warbonnet, but hear good things. Ah someday!

    Gotta admit, I have absolutely zero experience with the Hennessy line of hammocks, but the WBBB rocks!!!!! I think I may give the new UQ/TQ a spin tonight in the back yard......

    I too just received a new to me blackbird and I love mine. It is for sure the best sleep I have ever had outdoors.

    I think I fell into the Hype about Hennessy, it is well made and after swapping it out to whoopies I liked it a lot better...then I took a WBBB for a spin and it was all over.
