    What length tarp can I use without needing extra poles? I have a few in the basement and the stand is on the way.

    Also, itís my understanding that Iíll use the stand ridge line and then stake down the sides of the tarp and tie the top of the tarp to the stand on the ends. Is that correct?

    Here is an 11' tarp on mine with no extra poles.
    Try any tarp and as long as hammock ends are covered you'll be good.

    I think 11 ft tarps generally fit on the stand without the extension poles. Like Shug said, just try it out and see how it fits. My 12ft tarp was just long enough to need the tarp extension poles to make it fit right.

    Tensa Outdoor and the commercial packable tensahedron stand

    How hard are the pole sections supposed to be to pull apart/close? I have a few that are about impossible. Fist time open was a struggle. Now I canít get it back together to get in the bag.

    The issue is on one of the center sections.

    It was a nice hang tho, so maybe itís trying to tell me something.

    I ordered my stand last Sunday and received it today. Looking forward to tweaking the setup with my hammocks.

    I guess I should have read the latest post on here about 12 foot tarps and the tarp extenders use with the stand. Always time for a second order of additional parts.

    I hoping to see some pics and thoughts on converting the Tensa⁴ to the Tensa Solo setup.

    If you look real close (zoom, enhance, etc.), I think it says, "Step 1: Clean me." On a more serious note, any luck getting it to slide more smoothly?

    They shouldn't be hard to open or close. The internal scoring shown in your photo suggests sand has fouled, but you say also that the first time was a struggle. This shouldn't be. It is unlikely that this would have gotten through our quality control, but we have caught a few irregular segments, so I can't rule out the possibility that one slipped through. If it really was sticky from the get-go, it's a defect we'd replace under warranty.

    Possibly there is a slight bend in the tube, that might not be sticky with some of the smaller series, but is with one. You can try moving it to other sections to see if results are the same. If it's sticky with all, place on a known flat hard surface and roll, checking for uniform contact all along the segment. Anything more than about half a millimeter off straight counts as bent.

    Sometimes you can bend bent tubes successfully back straight. I've been able to salvage tubes deliberately bent in destructive testing (for personal use). You don't have anything to lose if the only alternative is replacement. The key is *gentle* persuasion to avoid any kink or deformation out of round. I would suggest assembling the pole complete, marking the high side, and pressing the pole across a large gap like a doorway, bathub, or counters to bend back straight. Multiple progressively firmer attempts with checks in between, pressing the high spot, are safer than anything resembling a blow which risks damaging more than just the original bent segment.

    I looked at the new instructions, and noticed that the ball loops are longer now compared to what I purchased a while back. What size loop is it now? I've lots of Amsteel and may just redo my old ones.
