Yeah, if you're gonna skate close to the edge you'd probably want to know where that edge is. :laugh: Right now I've got the tarp hung with just mason line on all the tie outs. I'd tested some in the past and it broke consistently at around 95 lbs tension. We'll see how it holds up when the next t-storms roll through. :D
I guess it's good to know the break points of your gear, at least that way you'll know if you set it up in some adverse situations, you'll know before hand if you'll be sleeping soundly through the night or if you need to be expecting something to break.
