The simpler solution, according to Ockham, is a stronger SRL.
we may have to disagree there, but the logic is that no matter what the 30* angle puts the least amount of stress on all things, including the tree. the tighter the hammock & lower the angle, the more force is put on all things in line of the suspension. we are not talking about an SLS suspension in this matter. when things vary from 30* (again, give or take a few degrees) the stresses involved multiply and cause undue wear on parts and in some cases can cause failure of parts.
