Bounced around and didn't get any movement. Allows quick adjusting to hang, and you can adjust the ridgeline by pulling line from either side into the ring, and then pulling the wraps tight again. It's a pretty simple setup.
haven't tried packing it up yet, but I expect I'll probably want to mark my preferred ring location on the line to ensure the ridge line is where I want it.
Boston, you've taken this to a whole new level by adding the ridgeline to the basic rig!
