HH Backpacker Asym Fly Problems
I am using the HH Backpacker Asym fly with the HH Ultralight Backpacker hammock.
I was using the asym by hooking into the hooks on the prussik knots on the hammock line but was very frustrated with how it hung so I moved the hooks on prussik knots to a independent ridgeline set up with a dutch hook and a figure 9. My problem is that whenever I get the hammock cinched down tight for a wind/bad weather set up, there is a massive amount of sag along the ridgeline, the fly is wrinkled, and end A flips to the right of the ridgeline and end B goes to the left making "full" coverage impossible. If this makes any sense, could someone help? Thanks!
The picture shows my use as a stock HH but I am having the same problems with a ridge line.
Re: HH Backpacker Asym Fly Problems
not true.. the prusik knots on the HH suspension lines are useless IMHO... even for the default asym fly. once weight is added to the HH, everything goes to pot... between all of us (friends, family, myself) there's 6 HH's we use... none even have the prusiks on them anymore. nor the stock suspension.. but HYOH.
