    Question advice on pole mod?

    awright. i'm about to buy a new custom superfly and i'm tryna decide which pole mod to use. in winter i like it to shed snow and have space, but in summer i like to fly high as possible for super doublesided porch mode unless it's raining sideways.

    from hours down the rabbit holes of pole mod commentary, i think what i learn is that center pole while beaky will give me free standing porch on one side that flips closed quick? what about holding up to wind? would i be better with sidlepull poles? and since i often pitch in one place for a few days, should i switch to silpoly? i was happy with silnylon, but my current one is developing tears. it's gotten about 270 nights of use, some of which were HARD use, so i think that's reasonable.

    i know you guys have OPINIONS, so i may as well harvest some up.

    In my opinion an inner pole mode is the way to go for winter. Sheds show much better. The double ridgeline poles that connect to side pull outs catch snow.

    I tried the SPOPM with my superfly and wasn't satisfied. The inner pole mods give a nice round shape to the tarp (see Shugs pictures).
