    Maybe this is unnecessary, but it seems that someone could create sort of a scale or rule-of-thumb to maintain the hang angle. So if you trees are 15, 16, 17 ft. apart, you place your suspension how much higher for each foot??

    In my testing I've found that for most people at 15 feet apart set your suspension at eye level, at 16 feet got top of head, at 17 feet go about 6 inches over top of head, this seems to get me at the sweet spot range everytime. Just have to adjust my suspension length a little and I'm ready to relax.
