    Stingerz and Snake Skins?

    Is this a possible combination. Just about to switch my CRL to 2 separate lines with Dutch's Stingerz spliced onto Lash It. I got my WL Tadpole for Christmas last year when they were running a deal where you get Snake Skins with it, alas my Snake Skins have sat in the bottom of my gear box, neglected and unused. Will I be able to use them with a two line ridgeline. I'm thinking I would just have to pull them far enough back to expose the Stingerz and then they would just hang on the inside of the V between the Stingerz and the Tree without looping around the tree.

    I use two lines with Tarp Flyz, not Stingerz, but it is a similar idea. I have no problem using skins with the Flyz. The narrow end of the skins are still wide enough to go over the hardware without a problem.

    I use a continuous tarp ridgeline with a single Stingerz along with snake skins from Mountain Goat Gear. The combination has been working well for me. Since the tarp gets hung while it's still in the skins, when the skins are pushed out of the way, they ride on both sides of the V.

    The discussion of the CRL starts at about 6:18 into this video:

    I have combined them...no problem at all. Though more of a Dutch Wasp user these days.

    Been using stingerz and 'skins since I rigged my Tadpole. I did what was suggested on this site and spliced a continuous loop (6" IIRC) to the ridgeline tie out and clip the stingerz to that. Helps keep the stingerz clear of the snakeskin. Works just fine, though I'm considering making the switch to the wasp. Have yet to switch RL between tarps so I think wasps or flyz will be a better fit for me.
