Dumb on my part. I answered my own question.
If the WS needs a 12" Bury and the UCR needs more, then my 9" was way too short.
I found some hardwood in the forest today on a short walk. I'm going to test it to see if I can use it with the Sliding Toggle Method on one end, and the UCR on the other end. That way, when I'm hanging and someone asks about my setup, I'll have more to brag about how the hammock can be hung in a variety of ways & methods.
