The bridge hammock guys (all three of them who post anyway) run lightweight spectra from ring buckle to ring buckle. In my arrangement I have a separate line for each ring buckle, one of which has a small ring at the end. To set the length I run the other line through this small ring, and tie it off using a full turn and two half hitches. You can sort of see that in this picture
Once I've found the length I want, I tie a knot in the line w/o small ring to mark a place near where I want to pull the line before tying it. Or just leave the ridgeline tied in.
