Thread: WBBB ridge line

  1. #1

    WBBB ridge line

    I'm having problems with my BB ridgeline.I have it hung between two post that are 13ft part and my tree huggers are 6 -6 1/2ft above the ground, but when I'm in the hammock the ridgeline hangs downand is very loose.It looks nothing like what is shown on the Warbonnet video. I haven't had this problem the other two times I hung it, but the trees were further apart on both those occasions!
    What am I doing wrong? Thanks

    Lower the tree straps or raise the hammock that usually fixes my problems with the ridgeline

    You need to tighten the suspension straps.

    Is it because its not hung at the correct 30* angle? I'll try both suggestions to see which works best. Thanks guys

    That's correct, you are hanging with too much sag. As said above, lower your tree straps down a ways and tighten up the hammock suspension so you get that ~30 degree angle. If you just tighten the suspension and not lower the straps then your hammock will be too high to get into easily. Keep messing with it until you get it right.
