I currently have a pair of WBBB's, 1.1 DL and 1.7 DL. I'm trying them both to see which fits me best. I am 6'2" ~215lbs. I don't have a place to hang at home, but have gone out to some family land the last several weekends to try and dial in my hang but keep taking steps backwards!
The 1.1 has stock webbing suspension, the 1.7 has a Whoopie Slings All in One.
1. I am having slight calf ridge issues as my feet "fall" into the footbox. It is equal between both hammocks, so I'm convinced it is not a 1.1 vs 1.7 issue and is related to my hang. I HAD a 1.0 DL and it stretched so much that I found it very uncomfortable. I think my solution to this will be found in the next two questions.
2. What are you guys using for tree distance? I found three large oak trees in a triangle that I am using to set up both hammocks at the same time. They are 17'-18' between them. I am starting to think that this is not enough distance. I have watched the WB videos and he recommends 15', but to my eyes it looks like he's hanging at more like 20'.
3. How in the world are you getting 30 degree angles at 15' without your straps being 8' tall? The hammock with Whoopies is definitely easier to adjust than the WB webbing, but I cannot get either hammock dialed in. I can get one side right, but then the other is <20*. I cannot get them to equal out. I usually end up with the head end 2-3' closer to the tree than the foot end. I start everything off with straps at ~6' high and trees ~17' apart and go from there because that's an easily repeatable baseline for me. However, when 30* starts to appear the hammock is usually laying on the ground. How are you shorter guys doing it?
