    Here it is with my Superfly tarp
    With and without interior center pole mod
    Advice and criticism welcomed
    At 90" base width I am very close to cross bar
    I did not have an underquilt with me on this trip (that's a whole other story) to see if it touched the bars
    I use a Dutch 11' wide netless
    And am 6' + 285
    I just slipped my continuous loops over a pole and am done
    Seat height is perfect for me
    Just wanted to.make sure that is ok

    What size poles are guys using for tarp tie outs?

    If you add a little suspension to each end (6-8") and narrow the base to 72" you might have more clearance from the poles. But as CMC4Free said, if it works you are doing it right.
    Come check out the new NoGround Trekking pole to hammock stand conversion at http://www.TiggzCraftworkz.com or0 https://www.facebook.com/Cheryl-Mitc...4489757564144/ or email at [email protected] and the new Tensa4 tensahedron stand at http://www.TensaOutdoor.com and [email protected]

    Yup. For reference, we’re finding that a 12’3” hammock requires no suspension and provides plenty of head/foot clearance with a baseline of 72”. Making up the difference in suspension with your 11’ should roughly approximate.

    That's really cool. That supports my (incredibly amatuer) findings that my approx 11ft, possibly longer DIY hammock needs just a little bit of suspension on the ends to fit on the stand correctly. I have never quantified that with actual measurements though, just eye-balled it and 'hey it feels good'.

    If nothing else, for my own benefit, I think I'm going to reset my baseline to 72" and maybe take some actual suspension measurements.

    I was wondering what most people are using as suspension with the stand. I'm getting one for my birthday and want to be all ready. I have a war bonnet xlc with strap and buckle. Can I just run it really short or is a longer CL better or something else?

    For suspension, only no-go is something you can’t make short enough, like some whoopies/UCRs. So tie a loop? We figure most users will carry tree suspension with them, and that works fine. We’ve entertained idea of integrating short daisy chains into the kit for simplicity, but nothing’s simpler than nothing, so.

    Any updates on the tarp extensions? I've been drooling since Hangcon
