    Nano Ridgeline

    I was thinking about adding a ridgeline to the Nano to set the sag.
    I know I can just get an adjustable from Opie (and may go that way for experimentation), but what length has worked out for those who have added a fixed length line?

    The "rule of thumb" is that the ridgeline is roughly 83% of the hammock length (approx. 10" for every 12" of hammock length).

    Small differences in RL length (reportedly as small as 1/2") will affect the lay of the hammock. After some trial-and-error experimenting, you'll find what works for you.
