    separate ridgeline?

    Wanted to know if any of you WBBB guys are suing a separate ridgeline for your tarp or if you're just using the built-in ridgeline on the hammock to hold up your tarp.

    The hammock ridge line is not meant to support the tarp. Hang it separate. A ridgeline in a hammock is to pre-set the sag of the hammocks body and to support the bug net if attached. A tarp ridgeline is another creature all together.

    To expand on what Paul said, the ridgeline on the WBBB is a Structural ridgeline You may see people refer to it as SRL. The tarp ridgeline will be higher so you have room under the tarp to get in and out of your hammock.
