    HG Phoenix

    Dumb question but which end is the head/foot. I used my uq for the first time over the weekend and used the tag side as the foot end.

    I've kind of wondered this for a while. I use the tag side as the head end. Frankly, I don't think it matters because it's not a tapered UQ, to my knowledge. The width is 45 inches on both ends.

    The instruction sheet that came with my incubator said the tag was the head end. That's because there is a "leg shelf" on the full length UQ but I would imagine its the same for the Pheonix

    I don't think there is a difference. Mine didn't come with a Hammock Gear tag.

    Maybe you could PM Stormcrow.
    Take care,

    Right now I am only using the primary suspension until Adam sendS me longer shock cord for the secondary as it was to short for my hammock. Can I over tighten the cinch cord and the ends to have a negative effect?

    Yes, I believe you can over tighten the ends. It would be easier to see with someone else lying in the hammock as you make adjustments and check with your hand that the quilt is against the hammock.

    My new 20 degree phoenix is tapered and the wide end is for your shoulders.Of course I had mine wrong side down(Duhhh)which really made a difference.Even though I thought I knew how to rig it, it took me a few nights. Definitely a learning curve.
