So far my refitted stand is doing ok. I could use some advice still, though, in hopes of not landing on the ground again.
1. The best angle / distance for tripod legs to be strong and stable. They are made of seven foot (3/4 " EMT) poles.
2. Currently the HH is tied to the ridge pole where the chains suspend it, directly below the apex, using the HH's ropes. I would like to be able to clip it on, like I do when using trees, so I can adjust it more easily. How could I do that?
