Suspension Vs Suspension, uncomfortable?
ok boys and girls, im tired of banging my head on a tree....
so i had an ENO DN that had a suspension made by a member here (please forgive me, i forget) and it was getting a bit on the worn looking side on some of the components. it was a one piece setup, where (starting at one side) i used a
dutch clip in the loop of the tree strap, which was directly tied to the whoopie sling, of which the end goes thru a descender ring that has one side of the SRL on it, as well as either soft shackles or biners for the hammock to clip to the ring by.
well i went out and bought a new ENO DN (not the new, light weight biner model thats smaller but the old version just new) and figured "new hammock, new suspension" and bought a setup from dutch which uses separate straps, SRL and whoopies. I put the new suspension on the old ENO and vice versa, and now my old stand by is uncomfortable and just plain sad (old hammock, new suspension).
i tried to match the RL lenth on them both but it just seems that i can not get diagonal to save my life and it feels just too tight. so much so that at my last group hang i swapped hammocks in the middle of the night!
someone tell me what im doing wrong here, because i cant figure it out.

Have you put the new and old hammocks side by side? Not all ENO's are exactly the same length so they will require different length RL's to achieve the same sag if they are not the same length. Also, how is your new RL attached?

Pictures please. It is a little difficult to diagnose comfort issues without pics of your hammock hung and you laying inside of it.
