SOLD - Eureka Chrysalis - modified
I bought a Eureka Chrysalis on sale (from Cabela's) recently and replaced the factory suspension with lighter weight suspension & spreader bars (AE's chain links/cinch buckles & web tree straps, amsteel ridgeline, Quest brand aluminum spreader bars). My total investment (not counting labor) is about $205.00 as it now is. Basically the same as factory production (hammock, top cover, & stuff sack), but with lightweight suspension. The total weight now is 4# on my scales, which should be within 1oz of certified scales.
I don't like the feel of a bridge type hammock, and my son has had some condensation on the tarp when he sleeps in it (oddly, I didn't have that problem, so it may be related to humidity levels - it was lower humidity when I slept in it.)
The hammock has been slept in 3 times (once by me, and twice by my son) total and has no tears or rips that I know of (and I have looked it over well).
Asking $125.00 shipped USPS Priority (CONUS) and prefer PayPal payment.
