I have two DIY KAQ that I am using. On one I have 1/8" shock cord running the lnegth of the quilt. On the other I ran out of shock cord and used 1/8" nylon rope. I am wondering which one is better. The shock cord seems to sag far more than the rope and opens gaps, but I worry about the lack of stretch in the rope.
I am using a system similar to the JRB suspension system so the shock cord there allows me to get in and out of the hammock with a minimum of difficulty. I actually sewed up the entry slits because I did not need them. anybody have any thoughts on which is better? Shock cord or rope?
