    Adding Suspension

    What did anyone use to add suspension to the switchback? Would you run through the channel and attach or run through the channel and lash it? Also what is anyone using to "spread" the bug net?

    I have whoopies on my Switchback. I just ran the fixed eye through the end channel on the hammock and did a larks head.

    I use aluminum arrow shaft sections to spread the bug net.

    Thanks! That is what I thought, but I wanted to make sure. Will you post a photo of the arrow setup if you have one?

    Do you know the length of the arrow shaft sections? There are some inexpensive carbon arrows on amazon. I thought that I might try those. Do you think that will work?

    Ditto, kind of. Suspension - ditto. But I stopped carrying something to spread and started just finding the right sized stick. In a pinch, I've checked, and a section of my trekking pole works fine. YMMV.
