But after trying this, I have a very comfortable, no-fuss bed now. Wish I bought one sooner.
Thanks, FM, and I know what you mean. There are some stark differences between this hammock and others that take a little getting used to at first, but once you do, it is comfort city, at least for me! And there really is not much "fiddle factor". I don't bother with a ridge line. It is supposed to be 9"6" between outer rings, but for me, if I am anywhere in the ball park, that is good enough. Basically, I just pull it fairly tight, and then back off a few inches. ( or, if the net is on, I pull it till the net is tight, then back off a bit). That always seems to be good enough, and when I measure it will be with in a couple of inches either way of of the 9'6". I may add a RL anyway just for hanging things from.
