    WBBB Ridge line ?

    Hello been awhile guys and gals question. Bought another WBBB my old one got a hole in bottom patched it but leary on using way back in. Well I always hated trying to sit and recline in it with the ridge line in the way , so I cut the one end made a loop on both ends and have a mini carabiner attached to the long section and then I hook it to the opposite loop. Problem I have now is the bug netting is loose and baggy and hammock ends seems twisted did I shorten the ridgeline to much ? any thoughts

    What does your modded RL measure? Making the loops probably shortened it too much and the biners don't add back the length that was lost.
    Don't let life get in the way of living.
