    Trying out our new BIAS Campus Loungers

    Me and the girl finally got to try out our new BIAS Hammocks that I got her and I for Christmas. We took a trip to one of our local regional parks and set up and relaxed for awhile. Tried out some new suspension techniques, instead of using hardware for the tree straps im just using a figure eight on a bight and threading the rest of the webbing through and using a marlin spike hitch. The only thing that got me worried was there seemed to be to much tension on the fixed ridgeline and couldnt figure what i was doing wrong. SO any sugestions are welcome. Here is some pics.

    Nice pics!

    Too much tension on thr ridgeline usually means you need to lengthen the suspension just a bit until it feels right. You might need to raise the straps up the tree just a bit as you do that to keep you far enough off the ground.

    Like Breyman said, a little longer on the suspension will help. It looks like you have it pretty close, but sometimes a couple inches makes a big difference.

    Those are some good pics! We might want to use one or two if you don't care.
    It'll be alright Friday!
