It would be a gamble and I think an all or nothing proposition, atleast on this forum. If you had the money to risk you might win big though. What would the weight of the tarps be? What is the color? Is it cat cut? Are the guy lines included and if so how much do they weigh? You may want to take your prototype tarp to some hangs and get the opinions of some of the people there. I would also check out any Claytor Diamond Flys that you come across because at your price point they are your established/main competitor.

great feedback!! thanks
By the same token.... a group buy with appropriate information about the product just might make it. If lazyboy wants a fly for cheap and doesn't care about going into business selling tarps then that might be a viable way to do it. A silnyl tarp for $25 or so might have a draw for people. But as a distribution system for a mass produced product... I have my doubts. If it is a unique configuration which meets an untapped need then yeah... but with just a description as offered... I wouldn't be an investor.

I mean... look at the parrot hammock... it doesn't even hole a candle to my clark but I'd still give it a passing grade provided you used it for a very limited range of situations.
Can we see a picture of said tarp?
I would agree that a couple of test tarps would be a great idea before making a big investment.
