    ENO Doublenest Ridgeline

    Does anyone know the appropriate length for a ENO Doublenest?

    I was also curious if Amsteel is what I want to go with or is there a preferable type of cordage?

    Also, how do I attach it to the ends?

    i use an extra long whoopie sling for a ridge line - it's adjustable that way -
    to attatch just run your suspension through it
    amsteel is usable but overkill, try zing-it / lash-it
    i think that mine is set to about 95" on the eno dn ~hyoy~

    To be honest, you can pretty much use any cordage you want for the ridgeline, preferably nonstretch.

    Amsteel is overkill, but can be easier to find in short lengths that some of the other high-strength lightweight ropes that people use around here. Zing-it and Dynaglide are both popular options. The smallest Zing-it 1.75mm isn't strong enough to hold a user over around 200 lbs, though.

    Cinnamon's suggestion is an easy set up.

    Mine is a whoopie sling made of amsteel with an adjustable length of 100''-120''. When I do use it it's usually around 105'.
