    Plus 1.......id say your knot is not uniformly tightened ,or is cocked off to the side changeing the pull from center to side.
    Hrm, this leads me to ask 'what knot?'

    I never tied a knot in the channel with my whoopie slings. I just ran one end through, then did a hitch by running the other end (the adjustable end) of the whoopie slings through the eye loop and cinched it down.

    This should show ya how to install them on a ENO and you can also see how the original suspension was removed...should help getting it back on.

    I did exactly that on my GT Double, which is essentially the same hammock... No issues.

    Three recommendations for the same video, it must be good. I removed the suspension on my Grand Trunk Ultralight and went with Whoopies and never notice a problem. Grand Trunk uses channels as well.

    While you have it apart, you could try a mini spreader bar and see what effect it would have on the comfort level of your double nest.
