    DIY Asym tarp.

    Just finished my diy asym tarp. 1.1 silnylon 2nds, a little heavy silicone spot on one end but I followed the guide on their website and that end got cut off anyway, from DIY Gear Supply tarp link . Fleaz and Tarpworms from Dutchware with continuous loop prussiks on a 30' Zing-It 1.75mm continuous ridgeline, 2-9" Coghlan's stakes with 8' of 130lb planerboard line as guyline. It turned out at 11.5oz/326g ready to hang. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Silnylon is slippery to run through the thread injector, but I find it is more stable than non-coated fabric.
    The Dutch bling is awesome the Fleaz are lighter than the small metal Figure-9's I was using and allow me to use thinner line for the ridgeline. The Tarpworms are about the smartest thing I've ever seen. Wow, so simple and they work so well.

    tinysailboat - The tieouts are 7/8" grossgrain ribbon folded in half over the edge of the tarp, and I folded the tip of the tarp back and stitched it down. It is same bright green color as the guyout line I use. The camera focused on the grass and not the tarp.

    dudeman_atl - The stuff sack fits the tarp and ridgeline very well. Yes Sir, THWG! I have a certain allergy to red and black.
