    Ridge line sag

    Just seem to be noticing my ridge line in my hammock becoming saggier after more and more use. Its got a good dip in it nowadays, just wondering if anyone else encounters this too, and possible solutions.

    Your ridgeline sag is completely dependent on how you hang the hammock...if it sags too much for your taste, hang the hammock "tighter"
    BTW, on a BB, the ridgeline is a measuring stick for the sag of the hammock...some (like me) like it with some more sag. Your hammock will still function

    Ike, you mentioned in another thread that you may have left the hammock up for several days. If so, you may be getting a little suspension creep (webbing slipping through the tri-rings, after being weighted/unweighted continually). That's not unusual.

    If that's the case, you might just need to adjust it every couple of days.
