    I'm not sure that there's any advantage of running rope through the channel versus webbing.

    But for adding a structural ridgeline, I think it works out better with the rope tied to the ring buckles. Doing ringbuckles with straps through the channel would be awkward, I'd think.

    I would imagine that you've seen people use webbing that was tied AROUND a gathered-end hammock . . . not through channel. But maybe I'm wrong.

    I use the Clark XL camo sometimes. And I use a custom 10x12 from OES.

    carabiner and straps with cinch-buckles is fine. That's what I had before this setup. But for adding the structural ridgeline to the Clark . . . this seemed like the tidiest, most convenient way to achieve it.

    Both of these methods are much easier to make adjustments to than the stock Clark rope and tree hugger setup, IMO.

    I bought the SMC rings from backcountrygear
    And the green Amsteel blue line came from APS.
    The rest was just a matter of knowing some knots.

    Hangnout, have you had any issues with your ridgeline?
    Still enjoying it?

    I have not had any issues with the ridgeline. I use it to attach my UQ's to because I can get the exact angle of pull I want. I put one on my daughter's Claytor mosquito hammock also.

    Looks great RAW. That Amsteel Blue looks good with the hammock.

    Raw -- Looks very cool. This is the first structural ridge line I've seen used on a Clark. What's the reason you did this?

    I liked the idea of an easily repeatable sag, with no fuss.
    Also, doing it my way, there aren't extra lines to tie out for the netting.

    Hangnout has had his Clark with a ridgeline for quite some time. I'm sure there are others.
    I just document everything for the world to see.

    many others have done it but marta and Hangout are probably the first that I know of anyhow.
