    Trouble getting a diagonal lay...

    ...using my new whoopie slings on my eno SN. As a result, my right shoulder got a bit sore. What adjustments could I make? I'm new to the whoopie slings, but LOVE them already? I also have a NR KAQ if that helps in your assessment;-)

    Thx!

    Try more sag in the hammock.......tree huggers up the tree more. The acclaimed 30% angle.
    More than likely not the whoopies but just a change in hang.
    Here is some good sag/ridgeline info.....http://www.tothewoods.net/HomemadeHammock4.html

    As shug said, more sag. Lengthen your whoopies a bit and then raise the webbing up the trees a little to keep your height from the ground the same.
    Don't let life get in the way of living.

    I use the same set up as you. Ill third the sag, and one thing ive found to work is puting you feet in one of the floppy sides, it acts almost like a footbox, and makes for a more comfortable lay. hope that helps
