    My HG standard 11' with doors, stingerz and lash-it tie outs is 270g. Covers my XLC well.

    I may be doing it wrong but I have a 10' ridge pole that works well. I have Whoopie hooks on my continuous loops and it fits fine if tight to get the hooks into the loops.

    I don't like the way they pack in the skins either but still use them as I just shove them in the mesh pocket of my bag. It's definitely a love/hate thing for me.

    Which cords are digging in? The primary runs end to end so that doesn't sound like the problem. My Phincubator is just a bit longer than your Phoenix and I have it super tight with no cutting into me.
