    Pole mod help?

    Hey all, Iíve been working on pole mods for my 12í HG Journey. The pull out mods are fine but I canít seem to get a proper curve on the center pole mod. The pole is 9.5 mm, 114Ē long (same width as tarp). It kicks the center of the tarp out too much to provide any wind block (see picture). Is this just a common issue with center mods or should I be looking at a different length pole or different diameter pole? Thanks in advance, I appreciate it!

    You can try tiring out the center tie outside to get a tighter bend
    But it is the nature of a center pole mode

    You need a tie out to haul the ends back in . A simpler solution may have been to use a internal pole mod with just 2 poles ... ala Kitssapcowboy
