    I will agree with Ozzy. I have found that the area going to the footbox will be tight if the ridgeline is not slack. This took me several times to get it right. Also try to keep the head end a little lower than the feet. Hope it works out for ya!

    it's recently been discovered that calf pressure can also be greatly diminished in an end gathered hammock by keeping your feet in the normal spot in the footbox, but positioning your torso a few inches farther to the right.

    exactly what i meant. the more "sag" in your hang, the looser the ridgeline. it is only when i have the hammock too taught, and in turn the ridgeline too taught, that i tend to get that little "bump" right down the middle of my hammock near my knees...
