IF so, I doubt the trek is any different shape (i.e. not rectangular).
How bout the length and width, any different there?
The first thing I thought of when I read your post was the amount of sag. Since you don't have a ridgeline, each hang can be different. I saw a picture of the claytor in another post and it might have been the angle but it looked a little off for some reason.
Try attaching at different lengths and angles and see if improves. If you put a ridgeline in there you can find out how much sag you like. Then you'll know what to look for when hanging (or you could just leave the ridgeline on and feed it through the netting and have a nice hang every time).
I haven't undone the Trek Light Double end, but I have never had the ridge problem with it. I was thinking of making a DIY hammock with a channel ala a Claytor. I am wondering now if I should make the channel an arc to help the load be more uniform along the edge when it is under load. Anyone have any thoughts on this or have done this?
