    Tarp Suspension: 1.75 or 2.2

    I've been using 1.75 lash it with Dutch Wasps with my Tadpole tarp and have not had any issues. I'm thinking about a SuperFly or Winter Dream, both in 11' Ridgeline, for this Winter. Will the 1.75 be adequate for either tarp or do you need to upgrade to the 2.2 for the larger tarps with doors? If you use the 2.2, what's a decent alternative to the Wasps since the Dutch hardware is designed for 1.75?

    isn't the wasp designed for 1.75mm cords? that's what i use with an 11' and 12' winter palace from hammockgear, and it works perfectly fine.

    Honestly, it doesn't take much...a tarp isn't exactly heavily loaded, not like a hammock is, winter conditions are when it might be most loaded if snow and ice are sticking to it. Or I guess if in the rain and you've pitched it to collect the water rather than shed it
