    About to Fire on My Purchase; Help Me Finalize

    I'm pretty set on my final set up to purchase:

    Superfly, AHE new river 1S UQ, and dutch hexon/argon 1.0/1.6 DL/SL with knotty mod, fronkey and not sure which suspension.

    This is a tropical set up in Port Antonio Jamaica, aiming for a more stationary setup but reality is that I may end up moving around sometimes, 65F lowest temp, 7.5 mph wind avg, rain 120 inches/year. I want to just order a superfly (2 week lead time) and ask Brandon (I believe is his name) if there is any way to rush it out? I really don't want to wait 3 weeks for it and max ~2 weeks. Might the WL bullfrog tarp be faster/better or any other silnylon tarps? And new river 1s vs the MMG shamu UQ and others? I think I prefer a full length for comfort and may get a TQ too. I would like stretch in the hammock fabric, not too much, not none at all, prefer a softer fabric, and think a DL layer would probably be smart for mosquitos when I don't use the net and UQ but less important than stretch and feel, I'm 155lbs 5' 11.25", what do you think is the best combination for just enough stretch for me in argon/hexon SL/DL 1.0/1.6, maybe a hexon outer with argon inner? fabric ratings according to hammeck . Also what suspension do you recommend, how long tree straps you think I should get, any tarp accessories I should consider? and what else might should I order to complete this purchase, a ridgeline organizer? ridgeline light? argon pillow etc.? Links to your recommendations please. I would probably also order a UQP too but don't know if I can wait the 2-3 week lead time over at http://2qzqhammockhanger.com/hammockaccessories.html.

    Just ordered a Superfly (and 2x WBBB) last Wednesday. Received shipping confirmation less than 24 hours later. That is awesome service considering the difference in time zones (I'm in Australia).

    Yet to see the package at the door and realistically won't for at least another week.

    I ordered a SF a couple weeks ago. It also shipped in 24 hrs.

    Very pleased to be able to give an update on my Warbonnet order. Order processed in less than 24 hours and delivered to Australia in just 5 days... Amazing.
