Well, I wouldn't call it a success. Don't know what I'd call it. Seems the pull outs are placed a little high for the poles I have as it flattens the top of the tarp. These poles are not putting excess pull on the pull outs or the ridgeline seem, they are just very close together and it flattens the ridgeline.
and the pup cause he's a winner
You see what I'm talking about... I'm contemplating fixing two more prussicks onto my ridgeline to keep the poles pulled outward and add tie-outs to the pullouts, that are like my bottom tieouts. Use a prussick attatched to the pull out and attatch the the pole like a tent stake. This'll allow me apply the right amount of tension to pull out but not flatten my roof. Will mod this week and try out this weekend at Mohican. Will update.
Meant to add - I used 3 sections of .344 Easton Nano aluminum with end caps and shock cord through it. 2 poles, 6 pieces total. Total cost including shipping for mod 25.00
