both at home & on the trail, i use something for a pillow beneath my knees when on my back & between my knees when on my side.
don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
Drop:By all means, don't let it be a deal breaker. When I finally followed the advice of others here and put a little clothing in a stuff sack under my knees, problem completely solved! I think it also helps between my knees when I'm on my side.It's funny this should come up as I was just about to post about knees. My left one has been acting up recently, it feels kind of like a mild hyper extension. I cant work out if its hammock caused, hammock exacerbated or just one of those things.
I'll have a go at changing the sag, possibly even have a crack at a home-made as i'd hate for this to be a deal breaker.
60" should be enough...just be sure it's long enough and you have plenty of sag. You should have a minimum of your height + 2' between the knots/whipping...I like more than that.
