    It doesn't make any difference in an ENO...it is symmetrical.

    Yes, diagonal...you can go to either side and either end. Some people report some slight stretching as the hammock conforms to your body. This would, in theory, argue for hanging the same way, every time. I've not noticed this, and just hang it and jump in.

    I have slap straps now, but will be ordering woopie's asap. If I use a sturdy ridge line to set sag, will the slap straps still affect the sag as they stretch?

    Shouldnt, but the stretch in the straps will make your sag sit on the ground after a short time. But then again I do weigh 260lbs.

    Also watch this!!! Shug talks ridgelines at 7:27

    My recommendations are:

    #1 Make sure your Ridgeline is the right length. You calculate this by multiplying the overall length of your hammock in inches by .83 or 83%. Then the number you get is what your Ridgeline should be. This is just a recommendation but it works for most people.

    #2 Make sure you're laying on an angle relative to the centerline of the hammock. If you draw a line between the two trees you're hanging from you should be on roughly a 30 degree angle to that line. Again this is a recommendation use what works best for you.

    #3 If all those don't work get a longer hammock. I find longer hammocks much more comfortable for me because I'm on the taller side (5'11"). And they help me lay flatter.

    That is sound advice.

    I would add that at 5' 9", I was more comfortable and had a flatter lay in the wider ENO DoubleDeluxe (9' 4"L x 8' 4"W) with a 93" ridgeline than the standard ENO DoubleNest (9' 4"L x 6' 2"W).

    You don't, the hammock is too short. Get an 11 foot, 72 inch wide hammock with a knotty mod (Dutch or Simply Light Designs) and give the ENO to a homeless person.

    I am a fan of ENO, but you can't lay perfectly flat in it. I sleep on my back mostly anyways, so not an issue for me. but try the things suggested here and maybe it will work, next try a longer hammock and the same diagonal lay. Hopefully you find something that works for you.
