I have suspended twice, once with 12 8ga. hooks face down on an aluminum framed rig in the shape of a cross powdercoated red, it was quite the photo op. My first time was on my birthday, I don't think there is too many people that have had Happy Birthday sung to them while they are hanging from 4 6ga. hook across the shoulders. It quite the experience because yer body and mind are at conflict with each other it seems. I haven't hung in several years as I moved to a different state but there will be another time for sure
