    Added structual Ridgeline and Tieouts om my frontline

    http://www.hammockforums.net/gallery...ge.php?i=11718

    I added a structural ridge line and 4 tie outs to my dd frontline this weekend.
    The ridge line became a perfect support for my net and makes each hang in the same pitch. and thats great.

    Works Great when I flip it and use it without the net as well.

    The tie outs makes some more room when I lay asymmetric style, And thats the most comfy way in my opinion.

    Makes a Great hammock even Better

    Hope U like it.

    Hey, where did you attach the tieouts on the dd? I haven't noticed any attachment points for them

    I've not seen this done to a DD before, nice mod.

    How does it affect the fit of your UQ?

    It dosen't affect it that much, I just put the chock cord from my UQ over my feet in foot corner if I use a shorter UQ, But I just made a longer UQ thats gonna cover me from top to bottom, hope to have some pics up soon.

    But it definitely gives a more comfy room in the hammock.

    I know this is really old but what is the length of the structural ridgeline you made? It seems to provide the perfect amount of sag to be flat and comfortable while still creating enough space in between the hammock body and ridgeline to fully stretch out the bugnet. Did you use the standard 83%( or is it 93%) of the hammock length?
