    I think you may want to reverse your thinking lab72. You set your ridgeline to get the amount of sag not the other way around. Typically, folks use a formula like this: take the total length of your hammock (before you hang it) and set a ridgeline of 83% of the length. Make minor adjustments to get the perfect amount of sag for you. This is a relative formula which changes person to person. Find that sweet spot for yourself and voila, you have a ridgeline. Hope that helps.

    Paracord is okay but may want to consider something called Zing-it or Lash-it. Lighter and won't stretch like para does. Now, we have to see pics or this entire thread... never happened.
