    inner shoulder ridge.

    So does everyone have issues with their inner shoulder being raised up a bit more than the latter shoulder by the center ridge?

    If not what solves it? Wider hammock allowing to get more diagonal? If I go any further diagonal I'll be on the netting.

    Do you have this problem with all those stated hammocks? I don't think I have enough experience to really answer your problem, but here is a bump for someone who does.

    Yep all of them. Inner shoulder is higher than outer. Essentially my shoulders are at a slant. Not much but enough I notice it consistently regardless of lay and hang.

    Could just be me being ultrasenditive

    I just got out of my hammock and I see what you mean. I feel the center line on my inner shoulder. But it doesn't really bother me normally, I hadn't even noticed

    On my Eno's, I felt a "spine" in the fabric, where there seemed to be more tension down the middle of the hammock. I removed the the big black rope and huge knot from the gathers on the ends and replaced with a section of dynema looped on both ends(Dog Bones). Clipped my carabiner through the loops and now the spines are gone.

    I whip my hammocks warbonnet style so it makes for a nice flat lay.

    If your ridgeline is floppy, that's a clue - it's possible that you're supports (trees, posts, etc...) are too close. That would result in an awkward hang, making it much more difficult to make a flat lie.

    Eh I'll have to get more tree time I guess.. I'm going to have to just go fiddle for a couple of hours instead of worrying about making miles and fires and such
