    Default have you tried this hammock?

    I got a "TICKET TO THE MOON" hammock. Has anyone heard anything about them or have you tried it? (5 ft x 10.5 ft--14.5 oz -- cap 350 pds) add bug net and tie ropes. 350 pds may seem like a lot but I weigh 250.

    Is there a web site for this hammock? I would like to know more about it and see a picture.

    I don't know. I don't think I would wake up without any aches and pains after falling asleep in that. I have a hard time sleeping with my body in a curved hammock. I have to lay semi flat. This hammock does not look like it does that.

    Default to much curve?

    Don't all hammocks curve, attroll? The farther apart you tie it off the flater it's going to be up to a point. But then I'm new to this thats why I asked

    I have a Hennessey Hammock and I can almost lay virtually flat in it no matter how tight or lose it is. I love it. You would have to try it to believe it.

    Default tried hammock today

    Well I got a chance to try the hammock today on this warm michigan day (33 degs). It was easy to setup and adjust, my pad fit fine in it and it felt better then my own bed. I think it's going to work.
