    Lite Owl Ridgeline

    I just got my Lite Owl and wanted to know what most were using (if at anything at all) for a ridgeline. What length are you using? Does it alleviate the calf pressure? I noticed some on my first hang with it, but it could have been the suspension angle (i'm a noob).

    Mine works great without one but I threw on an AHE adjustable ridge line and started at 107" and ended up around 110".

    Still experimenting with it

    Hey there....I have a Snipe...same length as the Lite Owl. Did a video on it. I show and talk about my ridgeline at 6:00 in. Hope it may help.

    Shug, I don't know how you do it - making videos that are so informative and so entertaining at the same time

    My snipe which I think is the same length as your Owl felt best at 110"
    I made a whoopies for my removable RL from some zing-it that's adjustable from 105" to 115"

    I have been from 108" to 110" on my RL using my Snipe..and all work great. I can't see any difference as my sweet spot is dead on and have slept in it now 3 weeks or more. Great lay and great hammocks from WL...can't go wrong in my opinion.

    I guess i'll give 110 a shot. I ordered the dutch ridgeline biners, so that should make testing a bit easier
