One more voice on this, and I agree on hanging a bit loose. I am not using any bottom insulation on mine at this time, so nothing to distort the visuals when hanging it up. With everything closed up and hoops raised, give a good amount of sag to the mid area of the weather shield. I am about 6ft. and a bit less than 250, and this works for me consistantly. While I am not against using one on the Clark NX250, I feel not need to use a ridge line, visuals work fine for me. To be honest, I had to experiment a bit to "learn" the visuals though. On my gathered end hammocks, a srl on them all.
