Sorry I am new to HF and am just about to get my hammock. I've also toyed with the idea of using the Figure 9 for my ridgeline. Does anyone have any pics of how one is set up, especially for those that keep it on their line all the time?
While the figure 9's are a neat item one should know how to tie a few different types of knots. I have fig 9's but have gone back to tying my ridge lines.

I have since removed my jrb tiny biner, replaced it with a simple double bowline that is pretty big, i jus wrap my line around the tree, put the rest of the line through the bowline and its secured. THen i secure the line to the other tree with fig 9, easy enough, and one less piece of hardware.
