Grizz, does your DIY have removable end panels? I don't remember.
The speader bars on the BMBH are 30" wide. I routinely use 36" wide with hammock width maximized at 52", and size my ends accordingly. One of my earlier versions had endcaps sized to go to 40" wide, but I rarely spread it that far and I ended up putting velco tabs on to take up slack.
Shoulder squeeze? What's that?
Sorry I can't help with the rest of the questions.
