Continuous ridge line and one of each. I'm putting the fly on a small loop on one side. My custom Dutch order will have a long line and deal with the large trees we grow around here. Test rigged this with Mason line and love how it works, deploys fast and adjusts easy.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Thinking about getting a set of Tarp Flyz to make hanging my tarp a little easier. Came across this thread as I was searching for an answer to a question I had about how to use them.
I plan to run a separate section of line from each end of my tarp's ridgeline instead of using one continuous line. Those of you that use the Tarp Flyz, do you keep your line attached to your tarp to make setup faster? And what method do you use to attach the line to the tarp? Do you just have a loop on one end of the line and larks head it onto the tarp D-ring?
The road to success is always under construction.
Stingerz all the way, these are a great item and alot easier to find if you drop one as well
My end lines stay attached to the tarp with flyz securely attached (by design). They get stored in the end pocket of my tarp skin ready for action.
If im using crl i find flys and dutch hook works well for me, on My smaller tarps i always using Stingers permanently attached
The only change to this is for cold weather the stingerz are nicer to work with gloves. And if you move your suspension between tarps it is nice to be able to disconnect it. Personally though I have a pair of Flyz for each tarp. Benefits of having a bin full of them though.
One last thing is I use grey lash it on the ridge line and yellow zing it on the tie outs. That way I can easily find the ridgeline pulling it out of the stuff sack and less likely to trip over the yellow lines.
