I don't think that the light will be much of a problem I work nights so i'm used to sleeping during the day, and when I camp I'm usually up with the sun anyway.
I am curious though is there much difference between cat cut and no cat cut with Cuben?
Just pulled the trigger on a custom HG cuben. I have the Superfly and love it, but I want to lighten up a little further for summer. I would recommend giving Adam a call or a shoot them an email on the cat cut issue. When I spoke to him, he recommended a very minor cat cut to facilitate a little better pitch. Outstanding customer service BTW!
