I'm finishing up my maccat 12x10 DIY clone and am getting to the point of deciding on what I want to use as suspension. I am fairly weight conscious.

full ridge line on top or under the tarp? or should I just run lines from the tieouts to the trees? ridgeline tensioning with prussics or something I dont have to worry about slipping like figure9's? Type of line I should use for ridgeline?

Any suggestions on base tie-outs? I'd like to find something lightweight and dayglo orange with some elasticity.

Recommendations for stakes?

What are the perks of your setups?
