A ribbon is sewn to the interior to secure the pole at the ridge line peak. I applied a small amount of sealer to the stitches on exterior of the ridge line.
Poles are Easton .340 with a 145 degree arch at the ridge line.
I am extremely pleased with the quality of workmanship and friendly service.
Why did you choose to use the "145 degree arch"? Wouln't the poles bend to that arch on its own? Just asking because I'm getting that mod done along with the sewn on tarp doors. Do you think the poles would bend a 90 degree arch on it's own? BTY, it looks great.
