    Well, I'm a bicycle tourist, at least a wannabe, lol. So I don't own trekking poles. But I did go out today and tried more sag. It was much more comfortable. I've been hanging it too tight all this time. Plenty of sag and your W whipping made it easier to lay down across the centerline. Now I see why people like structural ridgelines.

    I'm with Southpawx3 on this. If you tie the hammock level you have a tendency to gravitate towards your feet putting your legs/knees in a bind. So if you drop the head, or raise the feet, you'll lay in a much better position. And after riding the bike 70 or 80 miles it helps to elevate the legs anyway.

    Glad to see your getting it worked out. Thats one of the most important things and something that is stressed here. Test your gear, tweak it, make it YOURS. BD
    Just Jeff made me do it
