Speaking only for the JRB tarp, when the hammock is unoccupied, the spreader bars will touch the tarp. Once you get in, it will not touch the tarp. I would think you could make the Speer tarp work well for the JRB bridge as well. One thing I did with the spreader bars is I cut out small doughnut shaped pieces of closed cell pad and placed them directly on the ends of the spreader bars. It gave me more piece of mind as it glided over the tarp.
