    Well, I finally got a chance to measure my Chameleon ridgeline it came in at 113.5 inches but it was slack, not taught. I do have a bit of calf ridge, so I'm planning to make a shorter one. Since most of us seem to have started out at 110 inches from Dutch, I'm going to make a new one 106 inches long and count on the weave settling it out to 110.

    Try clipping a mini-biner onto the ridgeline and wrapping the cord through the biner several times (shortening the ridgeline) until you find a length that works. Maybe you'd find you want less than 110 inches (after stretch).
