In my experience, and I've tried numerous methods, a CRL on my Superfly takes too much tension off the the tarp's ridgeline, making it impossible to get a truly taut tarp like Brandon recommends having. Seems, however, many pitch it far less taut than he recommends without issue. I think it's really more a personal decision.
