i think you'll find panel pulls to be more useful with this hammock than extra tieouts along the edge.
you'll want to pitch the panel pulls individually instead of joining them together like often shown with the superfly, i think this is what kept you from getting a good pitch, as they are too far apart to string together and get good results.
