    New hanger looking for NX suspension advice

    I'm a new hanger with a Clark NX-270. I had my first hang last night now that I received my Loco Libre Jungle Pepper. Windy all night with a low of 35 degrees - toasty. My issue is getting the suspension set up for best comfort. My setup was under a pergola hung on the diagonal. The suspension that came with the Clark is an 8’ x 2” tree hugger strap with whoopi slings. It wasn’t possible to shorten this suspension enough to use the square side of the pergola. I experimented with the setup and ended up with the foot end 4-6” above the head end. I didn’t have a tarp, so the weather shield & bug net were zipped up because of the wind. I could grab the ridge of the bug net and twist it as I have seen on posts discussing ridge lines, so I don’t think it was too tight. I could zip the cover closed easily even though I would call the weather shield ‘taught’.

    I’m 5’-11” and I was able to get on a bit of a diagonal, but I still felt that I had a slight ’banana’ lay, which wasn’t that comfortable. I am curious as to what advice other NX hangers have to dial in the suspension.
