So I set up my brand new HH Safari in a friend's backyard to try it out before I hang in the wilderness. I'm 6', 285#. Seemed like I had to hang the hammock higher and tighter than I saw in any of the videos, and I was still quite close to the ground when I got in. I'm afraid with an UQ on there, it'll be dragging. The ridgeline was also quite taut.
I'm using the stock suspension setup. I used the tree huggers with a carabiner and rappel rings. Had them about 6.5 feet up the trees. Trees were about 15 ft apart.
Are they any larger guys out there who can give any tips or tricks? I don't want to damage my hammock, or my UQ. Thanks!
