    You will never have a problem with 7/64", as long as you follow the right hang angle.
    Very important that you get the right angle when attaching your suspension. Remember that under 30* you start putting exponential weight onto the suspension. A tight suspension at 90* with 200 lbs down force will generate up to 2,000 lb force on the suspension.

    It's pretty amazing when you see the difference "real time." The Hammock Angle app on my iPhone lets you input some variables like weight , ridge-line length etc. and then as you rotate the angle of the phone it shows the hang angle and all of the associated generated forces. The delta between 30 degrees and the flatter hangs is ridiculous! Everyone should see that visual representation.
