Head / Foot Elevation in Hammock

Do you elevate your head or foot end of your hammock - or perhaps keep it level?

Level if I can help it, maybe a little higher in the head.

Back with my first suspension system I would regularly wind up with one end or the other much lower, more often the head end for some reason. This is actually really uncomfortable.

It pays to spend more money on a sturdy suspension. Im now using a fairly hefy set of cargo straps. They weigh a bit but they are quite strong.
