I hung last weekend for the first time:
First I must say "Great Stuff"! BUT I had a problem with "Stretch" and expected some as I am about 300 lbs so I hung the hammock sat in it for a couple of minutes then re-adjusted. Then during the night I still had to "adjust" (re-tighten) the hammock two more times.
I used 11/16 "Tubed" webbing to hang the hammock. The distance between trees was about 16' to 18'. So that is a little further than I wanted and one of the trees was a little smaller than I wanted.
I guess the hammock stretched some, the webbing stretched some, and the tree leaned a little. All of which added up to alot stretch.
My question is how much of it was likely to be the hammock stretching (ENO DoubleNest)? And is it likely to happen everytime?
I have now purcashed 1" tubed webbing. And after reading another users suggestion, I have soaked the webbing in hot water to hopefully reduce any possible stretch.
