I have this totally irrational fear of the needle going through a finger (because I saw it once in a movie).

    I have several "cheap blue poly" 8x10 foot tarps. Maybe, just to see how the shape and hang of an Asym works for me, I'll trim one of those down (or just fold over and duct tape) to 6x10' (which is about the dimensions of Dutch's, I think).
    I can't speak for Dutch but, seeing as how he offers rectangular tarps in printed fabric, maybe a plain tarp can be done. If not Dutch, I'd ask the other cottage tarp makers about the possibility if you want one. Nothing out of fashion about a rectangular tarp: fold back the corners and it's a hex (as you can see in Cowboy's pics)!

    If you're not trying to seriously limit the weight, I'm not sure why you'd want an asym(?)

    FWIW, my warm weather tarp is a hex (very similar to the Tadpole) and it can handle most warm weather. Wouldn't want to count on it in a monsoon but it's weathered some heavy rainfalls.

    I'd pick the Hex for sure. I have been using one for years. However, if I could only buy one tarp now, I would get one with mini-doors. Great coverage for only a small weight penalty.

    If you're looking for a good quality rectagular tarp, try bushcraft outfitters over at BushcraftUSA. They have some very nice tarps, regular and silny, and in a variety of sizes and colors, with lots of tieout options.
