    You might want to go with about 8' then. We didn't understand that you were going to continue to use your stock line as well. 15 will be overkill for most days.

    Most people put the rings pretty close to the hammock and use a long strap of webbing to get to and around the tree. If the rings are a long way from the hammock you will have a hard time if the trees are closer together.

    I have hung mostly in the central washington cascades. I use 15' straps at each end for the entire suspension and wouldn't go any shorter.
    If all else fails, have fun!

    15' has been perfect, only a few times have I needed to relocate due to trees being too big

    I picked up a set of the 9' straps from Hennessey. I have yet to encounter something that I cannot deal with. IF I do, I will daisy chain with the 6ft straps I also have.

    You ever come down into the country I hang about in, Redwoods, and you'll be switching from 15 to 20 feet like I have. I don't use them to their full length often, but there has been times where that was the only option open to me.
