    I agree about the stress and I don't like the sag in the morning when I use the tarp under the CRL, so I always run the ridge line under the tarp.

    I use all variations, depending on my level of medication. HA! Seriously, all have advantages. Tying each end with its own line makes a nice "V" to pass my hammock support through without rubbing lines. I know you can do the same with CRL, but his is just one of the considerations I use. CRL's make it easy to center ( or off-center if that is what you want) the tarp. I like havinig options and they make set up fun.
