    I don't think that the measurement is really a significant number because what ridgeline length works for me may not work for others. I think that the key in putting a structural ridgeline on any hammock is to find that "sweet spot" that we all look for the makes us comfy and go with it. The measurement really, in my opinion, isn't important. It's just a number.

    Just looking for a starting point when I configure mine. I know I'll have to play with it, but just trying to get some idea where to start.

    BTW, SRV playin' Voodoo Child really rocks!!!!

    Ok, I'm a newbie contemplating my first hammock, likely and Eno Double, and I'm wondering what the purpose of the structural ridgeline is for?

    Thanks

    It lets you have the same amount of sag for every hang, regardless of the distance between hanging supports. Using a ridgeline is a good way to tune a hammock so that it should theoretically always maintain the same comfort level.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy
