    OES Deluxe or Ultra

    Simple question, I ordered an SpinnUL Deluxe Tarp. I was later told that the quality of the SpinnUL was suspect and would I like to change my order. I changed it to a Ultra non SpinnUL with 4 Tie outs added. Just got my Tarp today, wow was I surprised at how small and light it was. I count a total of 8 pullouts, but it has no tie outs and it wasn't the color I ordered. I'm not sure at this point what I got. Not complaining, just curious at the moment.

    What color did you get? I think the spinn only came in a light grey. What do you mean no tie outs? Are you talking no cord? Because the tarps I have bought didn't come with cords.

    I meant Panel Pullouts. The color is Forest Green.

    If you like the color,,,cool. If not, let Brian know and exchange it. You should get what you ordered.

    yea measure the ridgeline and also Ive seen alot before where some people get the tarps and expect them to be like superflys. alot of posts about that kind of thing. its just not a huge tarp and in some pictures I admit it does look like it is.

    Yeah, send a note to Brian. I was going to say if it's a dark grey to a light grey I probably wouldn't sweat it, but forest green is something that you either like or not.

    The 4 season tarps have 8 tie outs (not including ridgeline tie outs) and no panel pulls (unless ordered). The Ultra has 6 total. Maybe you got someone else's order. Brian was having a hard time lately and could have gotten some orders mixed up.
