Of course I realize you may want to attach to the prussicks for convenience and to have less tarp line to keep up with. But if the tarp sag in the middle is driving you crazy, you should be able to get both abundant head room and a really tight pitch and adequate coverage by tying to the trees.
Bet you like it a little better with some time. That said, there are advantages to the smaller tarp and just 2 points to deal with on the side.
going to do a parachord ridgeline tomorrow and see what happens....
