    So do you still use the drip ring? Have you had any problems staying dry with the new rope?

    Tarp shock absorbers...what a clever idea.
    no I do not use drip ring and I have not had any problem with the drip's LOL

    got the idea from justjeffs site. works great.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread... but... after a solid weekend of using the NX200 I've decided the stock suspension could be improved upon. I'm really intrigued on what I've seen in this thread, so I ordered 100' of Amsteel Blue and 30' of strapworks polypro webbing. Still looking for the best source of SMC rings. Sure wish I could have gotten everything from one source, shipping is killing me with the rope, webbing and rings coming from three different vendors. :P But, I figured the Amsteel and webbing could come in handy for something, even if not my originally intended purpose.

    Anyway, are you still using this suspension, RAW?

    Yep. I love it.
    It works really well for me.
    I've adjusted the lengths of the ridgeline and the end-connections a couple of times to get it just right.
    So, make sure that you keep some extra Amsteel in there for that.
    Don't cut off the tail ends until you've fiddled with the setup a little.

    Good luck!

    By the way, thanks a ton for selling me this thing... I'm loving it so far! Can't believe I used to think my tent was so awesome.
    Tent? What tent?

    I'm glad you're liking it.

    I feel the same way about my conversion to hammock camping. Why didn't I see the light sooner!?

    Because they make some great hammocks... there are several threads in the Clark subforum that talk about Clarks... what you read in those threads may answer your questions... if not ask specifics & you'll probably get some good answers...

    Just out of curiosity, what dimensions did you end up with? Length from hammock to rings and length of ridgeline?

    I got 100' of Amsteel Blue and 30' of Strapworks stuff. Just waiting on the SMC rings to arrive (darn you FedEx!!!) and I'll be ready to convert. I've got it hanging in my homemade stand out on the back deck right now so I can get some initial measurements. Been fiddling all evening trying to get that perfect hang going.

    .
    I'm headed up to NC tomorrow, and I'll be hanging.
    Probably in my BB, but I'll try to remember the Clark so I can take those measurements.

    Thanks a bunch, but don't go out of your way over it... I was mostly just curious. I was playing with set-up over the weekend and taking some measurements. Good thing I got 100' of the Amsteel, I have a feeling I'll be playing with this a bit before I get it set just right.
