    ENO SRL Length

    ENO users, what do you have your SRL set at? I'm about to put a ridge line on my hammock and Doing the calculation for a DN (112" x 0.83 = ~93") 93" seems really short. Am I worrying about nothing? Should I just stick with the formula? Any other words of wisdom?
    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...

    93 is correct, I'm having Dream Hammocks send me an extra ridgeline for our ENO (Adjustable though) and he just said it would be centered at 93. Sounded short to me, but should be fine.

    Since your ridgeline length would be a personal preference, the safe thing to do would be to either make/buy an adjustable rl like lanejustin did, or experiment with any old rope you got laying around to find a rl length that you like and then make a fixed length one of your preferred length.

    The 93" will get you in the ballpark.

    I agree with Banjoman. I use a long whoopie sling and mess around until I find the sweet spot. Starting at 83 percent is great, but try a few other lengths. Its not like your just layin' around....
