- I wanted to let folks know that I made the hammock tubes for the
Hennessey ultralight Asym tonight and they worked great. My final
dimensions were 7 inches tapering to 5 inches as that was all the
silnylon I had left. I used a 1/4 inch seam allowance, the fabric is
just over 60 inches wide and I have plenty of overlap.
Thanks to everyone for the tips. Thanks to Shane for the excellent
video demonstration of how to use them.
