There may be a group hang nearby where you can pick up a lot of tips and techniques to speed things up or find that perfect system. Hangers will often let you try out their rig to get a taste of whats out there.

Are you still using the stock Hennessy suspension, with the figure-8 knot? If so, that's going to be part of your issue, for certain. It takes just this side of forever to adjust that properly.
