    How long is your ridgeline? 83% of the hammock length is a good starting point but it should be tweaked to your comfort. If you have to set up that high you probably have nylon straps which will leave your butt on the ground over time. Some polyester straps or whoopie slings will not stretch and you'll have some consistency in your set up.

    Definitely sounds like you have nylon webbing. Get some polyester webbing and you'll be hanging pretty in no time!
    Quality hammocks for an active lifestyle!

    Look into the Dutch hook system. The heaviest thing in the system are the tree huggers. You can find it on the Dutchware website.

    I made a giant whoopie to use as a ridgeline, adjustable from around 85" to 108" It works splendidly! My preferred sag is around 95"-96".
    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.
