    I actually emailed Brian to find out. I have been trying to purchase a tarp made from Spinn, but the fabric which he received was not up to spec. Now I'm reading this post and drooling at the weight, but saw the prices over at MLD and almost choked .

    So far they're holding up great. I don't have a use-count on nights spent with it (maybe 20), but no issues at all even in some rough weather.

    I don't have any idea about Brian's plans to offer more of them.

    What type of ridgeline are you using? Two (one on each end), CRL (over or under)? I ask as I read that too much tension on the ridge is not a good thing with Cuben! How is the stitching holding up? Sorry about the specific question's, but I'm curious to the different methods of design and construction holding up in time!

    With that tarp I use a CRL, under. No issues with perimeter or corner stitching so far. The ridge has no stitches...just the taped seam.

    Thats awesome to hear, thank you! I have been trying to keep up with the whole Cuben thing and the tape vs stitch thing is what I am still battling, as I understand it that the material is severely affected and weakened by stitching!

    I'm so sad I saw this thread. Now I have to buy two tarps... One for this summer and one (I suppose) next Fall. Unless someone can tell me that this is gonna be the priciest CF tarp on the market, in which case I'll be happy again, because then I wont be able to afford it.
