Well, technically I trusted it about 10 inches off the ground. I have a hammock I bought off a guy and the "S" hooks were aluminum or something because they bent straight the moment I got on this thing. Remember guys and gals, I am a Fatty McFatty pants at 220lbs

Anywho, I only had 2 good "S" hooks at my house, so I used a single strand of paracord on the end on the 2 sides. I used a mooring hitch to secure the cord.

It held up just fine to all my bouncing around as well. Thought you all should know just how tuff 550 cord is (but I also wanted to share my story :D). :cheers1:

I wish I weighed 220.

I'm at 271, down from 360.
Congrats on the weight loss.

And this is why you are DaBigKahuna ... and not tiny.:cheers2:
I also wish I weighed 220. I topped out at 235 recently. It has been a long cold winter.

Is this hammock made of paracord? My last hammock failed me and lets just say my pride was hurt.

Congrats on the weight loss DaBigKahuna. I went down to 193 for the Army, realized my health sucks, and decided to eat again. Ha ha!

The hammock is a piece of cloth with a dowel on both ends. I think a paracord hammock big enough to fit me would be too heavy.
