    It doesn't make any difference in an ENO...it is symmetrical.

    Yes, diagonal...you can go to either side and either end. Some people report some slight stretching as the hammock conforms to your body. This would, in theory, argue for hanging the same way, every time. I've not noticed this, and just hang it and jump in.

    I have slap straps now, but will be ordering woopie's asap. If I use a sturdy ridge line to set sag, will the slap straps still affect the sag as they stretch?

    Shouldnt, but the stretch in the straps will make your sag sit on the ground after a short time. But then again I do weigh 260lbs.

    Also watch this!!! Shug talks ridgelines at 7:27
