I measured 12 on mine. I do not want to go shorter. I hung from trees over 18' apart with only stretching issues. The longer straps also give you the ability to wrap around the treees multiple times spreading out the force on soft bark trees.
Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

12' per side for me.

I have about 15' on mine, but i think I'm going to shorten them a bit. I haven't decided how much yet. I'll get a few more setups on them to see how short I can realistically go.
HE - Ed's webbing is polypro, not nylon. I forget how long mine are on each end...maybe 10'? Longer than I've ever needed. I think on the east coast I could probably go to 7' and be ok.

IMPOSSIBLE JUST TAKES LONGER
Ok, it's almost together. I FINALLY ordered the last component of my ring buckle support system this morning, some 2.8mm Spyderline from Annapolis Performance Sailing. All I have to do now is wait for it to get to me and put it all together. I've read good stuff about the customer service at APS, which is part of the reason I ordered from them. Can anyone else who has done business with them remember how long it took to get their order? I went with UPS ground, so I'm guessing by the end of the week, at the latest. Anyway, photos of the final product as soon as I can. Of course, it will be with me at Hot Springs.
