Try a ridgeline around 8'. Add or subtract from there. Too short can be just as bad as too long. And make sure you hang it tightly enough that the ridgeline isn't sagging when you get in - it should be tight if it's supporting the weight.
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
