First, I am not (yet) a Switchback owner.
That said - I think you hit the nail on the head there - it was likely the slight learning curve of a non-structural ridgeline hammock. It's very easy to set them up with too much, or too little sag. Experiments with ridgeline length show us that it doesn't take much to seriously affect the comfort level (folks talk of even an inch change can seriously affect the hang). I believe that once you "dial" it in for you, it'll be a great hang.
This may not be ideal, perhaps other owners and the makers could chime in, but could you add a structural ridgeline to it without negatively affecting the interior space?
