    JRB Bridge

    Anyone know the minimum hang distance for a JRB Bridge? Wondering if I will have enough room to hang inside with it.

    Distance between the outer rings for the UL model about 8.5 ft, for my older model about 9.5 ft, and I assume the current DLX model is something close to one of those numbers. Just add some minimal length of however much you think you might need between the outer rings and stand/tree for the suspension to be wrapped. Really just a few inches on each end maybe, or add 1 foot on each end if you want to be sure.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    HI Craig, I measure 10 feet between rings. Using the webbing you can make it fairly short. using whoopie slings will require more distance but I do have a pair of whoopies if you want them. Joe

    spreader bars are 32 inches long

    Thanks, now I know the Spreader Bars are 32" so from the hammock to the outer ring I'm guessing is about 18-20" is this a correct assumption? I'm making an end mock up to see if it will clear some furniture.

    Are you referring to the JRB bridge or the WBRR? I think my WBRR runs 2 or 3 feet longer than my JRB UL, with my full size JRB running a little longer.

    BB58 and Jokerr have the numbers on the JRB, the RR is longer but I was able to hang both inside of my 14 foot wide testing space and get good suspension angles on both.

    Talked to Jacks R Better earlier and the hammock to ring is ~20", unfortunately I won't be able to fit a bridge inside where I currently hang.
