    Double TTTM ridge line length help

    hello all. i'm trying to figure out the structural ridge length that works for my new double TTTM. yes, i'm a ridge-line dummy, since i've only used an HH until now. the sewn outermost sections of the double hammock (contrast-color parts) stay really loose and don't work too well for me as a single user. is there a ridge length that optimizes diagonal laying in the TTTM double? right now, i'm at a 9'-0" ridge line from where the suspension hook points were. my guess is you guys'll direct me to the thread i should have been able to find myself! ...and thanks to you all for your amazing help.

    Have a look at this thread.

    Try starting at about 100 inches and working your way back and forth a few inches from there till you find what suits you. That being said, the sides will be loose no matter what you do in a hammock with end channels. It's just more material that allows you to lay even further on the diagonal, though.

    It helps when there are 3,803 threads and 60,383..84..85..86..87 posts, and you have guys who have read everyone . There really is a wealth of knowledge here, and a lot of Wisdom in the membership.

    If it helps, I'm about 5'10" and my ridge line is about 102" on my TTTM hammock.
