So I got home and up it went. In all honesty, this is the first Superfly I've laid eyes on since several versions ago. The thing I didn't think I'd like, I like just fine. The camo is, well, camo. I've never been a huge fan of it, but since losing my SG 9x9 (neo tarp!) my arsenal is without camouflaged cover. At least it was until about noon today.
Some shots from back a little. The last one is probably about 50' away, taken from the back pasture. I'm pleased that, at a glance, it blends nicely. It will be interesting to see how the changing light impacts its stealthiness. I'll take pictures at various stages of the fading light and see if there are any real differences.
From the inside, sans hammock:
One of my concerns (my only real one) was the way Brandon described to me what he has done with the doors. My newest SuperFly was from probably early 2009ish. It has two larger triangle doors and two smaller triangle doors; all are separate pieces of fabric sewn onto the main panels. I really like that configuration. It allows all the edges to be kept nice and crisp and makes me more comfortable as I'm crankin down on the tie-outs. With the new ones, the panels and doors are all one piece, so no seam. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. While not exactly 'crisp', the edges are nicely formed without the seam and not really very loose. I was imagining the ridge of a stock HH fly. The picture below shows some folds in the fabric, but I think a simple repositioning of the tie-out will take care of it. It's a little breezy here right now, but the tarp isn't making a sound. That, I like!
Course, Chyna the wonder-dog thinks I was building her a fort.
