When figuring this out, would you go 83% of the fabric length, or 83% of the length that the RL will actually be spanning? I'm planning on attaching mine to the cinch buckles on my hammock, and they are probably another 6-9" extended from either end.
Obviously I need to play around and see what's comfortable, just looking for a good starting place. Hammock length or full setup length?
Also, if I remember right, super tight isn't necessary on a RL, correct? Snug, straight, and taut, but not cranked down under tremendous tension, right?

I've found that to be true for me. And, of course, everyone is a little different, so maybe start with that and adjust to fit if you don't find it right for you.
