    MacCat Questions...

    Looking at the OES website it lists the sizes of the MacCat Std & Deluxe as 125"x84" & 130"x104", but when I click on the Deluxe it (the pop-up picture) lists it as 130"x120". So what is the current product size 104" or 120" wide? Also what is the approx. length from tieout to tieout?
    I'm trying to compare this to my Hennessy Hex it's 141"x114" with 7' between tieouts.

    Thanks, Jeff
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Brian posted that the Deluxe is the same width as the Ultra. He updated his size on the specific page for the specific hammock but the dimension on the landing page is incorrect.

    Even so, the Deluxe is not as wide as the sil HH hex fly, which I own and like. My only isssue with the large hex HH sil tarp is tarp edges flap in the wind and is difficult to stop given the width between corner tie-outs.

    A tie-out setup like this would be helpful but I am hesitant to install a grommet(s):

    Any ideas on the distance between tieouts?

    jeffjenn, if you're looking for a wide hex, the mamajamba is 132x126", and i believe about 7' between ground tieouts.
