From what I've read here, it's still a good thing.
Also, I have a continuous ridgeline already which I will keep, so do I need to talk with Joe about having attachment points for them?
Anyway, I need to order soon so I'll have it for a summer trip, 8 week waiting list now. I appreciate your input.
PS I've researched all the posts here to date re:cuben, still seeking help.
Thanks in advance,

I and some friends made DIY cuben tarps this weekend...
I basically used the same design as this thread (stolen from LRR-thanks!!)
-I have not added panel tie outs yet..I can't decided if I want them, so no help!
-I used a cat-cut...not sure if its necessary. It wasn't any more work, so...??
-I also use a CRL and no additional ties needed...IMO
Cuben is new...everyone is doing things a lil different than the next guy. No definitive design answers...so, ask Joe (zpack) what he recommends...
