So I am taking the plunge and attempting a DIY hammock in prep for a scout project. I can't even consider making a tarp so I am looking for an inexpensive and versatile tarp. Right now I am comparing the Kelty Noah's tarp 9' version to the hennessey octagon to the eno profly/rain fly.
I really like all the tie outs on the Kelty. Can it be hung successfully in a diamond or a square. I am thinking at 9' it is too narrow to be hung over a hammock as a square. In a diamond it might be too long for some hangs(12+ feet).
The eno's just look unruly to work with.
The hennessey just does not have enough tie outs to be versatile but seems to be the best for hammocking.
I am looking to use this as a shelter for my tent trips with the family so that is why I am looking for versatility and tie outs.
Thanks for any help.
