I go a cheaper route--save up the plastic balls from rollon deodorant bottles or a ping pong ball. Bunch the fabric around the ball, tie around the base (2 round turns + 2 half hitches) with a short piece of cord which then becomes your tie point.
I tried to order over the weekend and got error messages. I emailed, and today the Nice Lady in Charge called me and took my order over the phone. Very nice customer service. Maybe I'll get them by the weekend and have one more bit of gear to test.
What size grip clips do you guys use for sil, the Light Fabric or Micro? Does anybody know how much they weigh?
I use the micro ones. No clue what they weight, but it ain't much. The 25 or 30' lengths of mason line on each side probably weigh as much.
I have no clue which ones I'm using. They were the only size REI carried. About as big around as if you make a circle between your thumb and index finger.
