I'm having trouble here guys. I've got about a half dozen over night hangs under my belt, the majority of which have been between trees which a 'good' bit of distance between them (5-7 paces). I didn't really have the whole 30degree thing in my head when I strung it up the first few times but I was still comfy.
But when I try to hang in my garden I can't get comfy. The two trees are closer to each other (4 paces) and when I string my hammock up and get in it feels like the centre line down the hammock, across which I usually lie, is tight and more pronounced.
Incidentally, my SRL droops when I get in, does that mean the hammock itself isn't taught enough? I just switched out my suspension but I think I'm missing something when it comes to this ridgeline business
From what I've experienced (and I've heard others reporting the same with DD Hammocks) is that a straighter hang (in terms of the hammock not position within) is prefered. Whats the ballpark figure for the length of the SRL against the total length of the hammock as a %, if you want a straighter hang?
Any help appreciated, I've been searching back through old threads and most threads throw up more questions as well as answers
