    Good on 'Ya! I don't think there is anything that works as fool proof and consistently with an UQ as does a bridge hammock, just based on how stuff works for me!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Very often I don't bother with my old BMBH with the removable net, just doesn't seem to matter that much. Usually I just tighten it until the net is kind of tight and then back off some. Although, I do suspect that the JRB MW UQ fits with a bit more precision if the hammock tension is just right.

    Bottom line: either way is good enough.
    +1 BillyBob, keeps the length just right.
    My bmbh is the original, but the newer model with the 3-side zipper on the bugnet, instructions say max width between the apex rings is 9'3" (my fixed ridgeline is set at 9'1", spectra cordage).
