      Found part of the answer (below). But with a ridgeline you don't
      have to hang it so low to get the same sag. Hrm...


      Hammock Stands for Hammocks with and without Spreader bars
      (Spreader bars are the wood bars on each end of the hammock bed)
      There are two main type of hammocks - those with spreader bars and
      those without. Most of the time, you cannot interchange hammock
      stands with these two types of hammocks. The main reason for this is
      because hammock without spreader bars must be set up higher either
      on trees or a stand. Hammocks with spreader bars don't need to be
      hung so high and if you did, you'd have a tough time getting
      in . . . unless of course you were 7ft tall.
