New cording too stretchy

Reviewed by Jeff from Seattle on Thursday, July 18, 2013
I've bought the same hammock here a couple times (over time, and leaving it in the elements, I give them hard use - no fault of the product that the way I use them they need replacing after a few years).

So got my most recent one and was disappointed to find they've replaced the cording with something very stretchy. Completely changes the mechanics - the fixation points must be higher and when in it, the person is lower, creating less of an almost-flat lying-down experience, and more of a sitting upright in a mesh trap experience.

With this much stretch, it can't be made of cotton as described. There must be some synthetic in it, and it must be a lot.

Can't recommend this anymore for any hammock use. Maybe repurpose it as a trawler-net for fishing?
