I think I'll make a diamond tarp for the summer. Not sure of the dimensions, but I do like 12' ridgelines....My old Guide Gear 9x9 diamond is plenty long, I just don't want a camo tarp.
I want something that doesn't have to be setup so exactly to get a reasonably taught pitch...i.e. tying the sides to whatever tree root, or log that isn't exactly perpendicular to the tarp's ridgeline.
IF I decide to copy a production model, what diamond tarps have you used and what were your thoughts about their pitching characteristics?
I wasn't sure whether to post this in MYOG or under Weather Protection.
