    I agree, and that's probably my next step. But until I do, the problem is completely solved for the weight of a few feet of line.

    Most folks may not even have the net problem to the degree that I do, because I have decided I prefer not pulling my suspension all that tight, for one thing. And I suspect that my netting might be a little looser than average for reasons previously stated. So this loose net problem may not be a major factor for most folks, especially since most pull their hammocks good and tight, using buckles and hitches that make tightening very easy.

    Thanks for the tips.

    You are welcome, hope it helps you as it did me. That's one thing nice about the hitchcraft(on the foot end), even more so than my buckles (on the head end). The HC made experimenting with tightening a quarter to 1/2 inch at a time EXTREMELY fast and easy.
