    Warbonnet Tarp Ticks

    Hey y'all! I thought that I'd share one way that I'm using my Tarp Ticks on my WB Mountain Fly and my son's Superfly. We both are using a continuous ridgeline and use the TT's to position our tarp along the ridgeline. The TT floats along the ridgeline while being tied to the rings on the tarp.

    We keep our hammocks and tarps setup most of the time. We've experienced A LOT of wind and rain lately - the TT's kept our tarps in-place! Warbonnet has done it again!

    I like it! I have a couple spare Dutchware wasps laying around. I could probably do the same thing as you have done. I currently use Tato tarp connectors on my CRL, but this gives me something to play with - just because.

    Looks good. I don't have any of those myself, but you can tell there's a lot of versatility built into those little bugs with all their holes, wings, mandibles, etc. Uses limited only by the user's imagination.

    Question for those who've used the Ticks..... btw, I like your use of the Tick!

    What I don't like about the set I've received are the sharp points. For the way I intend to use them, I see no purpose and may sand them off / smooth, so they don't have potential to damage my tarp in storage.

    I use Dutch Fleaz permanently attached to my tarp corners and ordered a set of these to setup a new tarp.

    What are other's thought about the sharp points?

    I just added a set of these for my main tree guys lines and look forward to field testing as well. In an initial setup in the yard, I also thought the "sharp points" could be a problem. I don't know how difficult it is to manufacture and revise this product and even the size may prohibit smoothing out the edges a bit. I plan to go on an over nighter on the AT later this week and will report back.

    There have been no reports of them damaging fabric. I think the tips are all just large and round enough that you shouldn't have to worry about that even though they do look small

    Any signs of wear on the lines (the spot for the wrap between the points) from using a TT?

    Not that I have heard of. I would say that if you are using a dyneema/UHMWPE line it would not be an issue because that material is just so cut resistent to begin with. I'll also say I feel like the TT work even better on a softer dyneema line so if yours still has most of the stiff coating left on it (our line is currently fairly stiff/coated, but that will likely change on the next batch we order) if you have a stiffer line you can saw it back and forth over the hook of the TT which will rub most of the coating off pretty quickly, this just breaks in the line and softens it up making it a little easier to wrap through the TT.
