Stretch, I thought about a spreader bar also, but decided not to risk it. With the warbonnet whip, does it make the hammock narrower on the ends? I was just watching a shug video, and noticed how he is able to lay at a diagonal-almost 45 degrees? on his diy hammock. That doesnt work for me---Im 6'5", and in the claytor I can lay at a small angle diagonally, combined with a structural ridge line with the right amount of sag, and a leg pillow ----------that seems to work really well ! I did a test hang last week, and was really comfortable! Maybe thats the secret, keep messing around with your hammock until you come up with something that works for you! Lots and Lots of practice!
