I like wide for good weather. In poor weather I stake it narrow so
I can get the fly down low and still get some air in.

I do this. Ventilation is key. I don't think it's overkill.

Yes, the Hennessey is also more comfy with some sag. It stretches a bit
when I first get in, so I actually string it up pretty tight and then
after I put

I get in and out the first time.
