Once you have the lay dialed in, the correct sag, your ridgeline just keeps it there. If it is too tight, then most likely the trees are to far apart for the suspension/strap height. Either find trees a little closer, or raise the straps up the tree. I have hung mine with the ridge just right, and had had it very tight, the lay in the hammock is always the same. As for the ridgeline stretching, depends on WHAT it is made from. Mine is zing-it. And I haven't had any problems with stretch. I have also used amsteel for the ridge, with no problems.
