    I dont get it. I thought the purpose of the SRL was to limit how far the ends of the hammock could be pulled apart and thus fix the angle of sag, thereby providing a consistent lay.
    If that is the purpose of the SRL then why does it matter what the angle of the suspension is?
    I understand force is multiplied at a lower angle, but if the trees, tree huggers, suspension system, and SRL can handle the force then what is wrong with using trees that are 20-30' apart with a 5-10* angle? The hammock angle is set by the SRL and the SRL is taking the load, not the hammock, because the SRL, is shorter than the hammock.
    What am I missing here?
