Well, I don't know what to call my new system, but maybe someone can think of a clever name. It's a combination of ideas that I got from altuistguy (single ring suspension) and redoleary (mini spreader bars).
I posted in the mini spreader thread, but I guess it's too old and not being viewed much.
So here is what I did and why;
My BIAS WWM 11' x 60" is comfy, but I am very sensitive to any calf ridge, so I was thinking of going the mini-spreader bar route.
I saw where someone had used a pear shaped carabiner through the end channel and then attached whoopies to the top of the pear. I combined the biner idea with the principles of the single ring suspension and this is what I got:
I have less calf ridge, the adjustment is a simple as a tug on the tag end (shorter) or a tug on the loop (longer), the ridgeline is easily threaded through the Amsteel, and the underquilt hangers work perfectly.
The adjustment can also be done while still under the tarp since it is right at the end of the hammock and the carabiner will serve as a drip ring.
Any comments or reasons this won't hold up to the test of time?
