Confused by all these options?
I am perplexed by all these slings and hooks, webbing straps and buckles etc...
Whenever i have hung my hammock i just have a decent length of twine tied to either end of my hammock.. I then go around the tree and tie what i guess is a marlin spike hitch and just put a pre-selected stick through it from off the ground. this way i can have it as long or as short a distance as i like trees dont like to grow pre-determined distances apart in my experience...
Am I missing something by not having a ridge line does it make sleeping more comfortable? Maybe this is why i find some hammocks pull in at the shoulders?
Does anyone use something similar to me but in potential a more comfortable and well sought out manner?
Thanks a lot happy hanging!
