I recently purchased the Explorer Deluxe via the Hennessey October clean out sale and I also ordered the Hennessey Hex fly. My other tarp is the ENO DryFly and I use the Nite-Ize Figure 9 Small plastic gizmos on all the tie outs in conjunction with a prusik loop. I have been pleased with this set-up on the DryFly and when storing I just leave the Figure 9ís on the line and bunch up the line as I pack the DryFly tarp.
The Hennessey Hex Fly seems thinner than the DryFly and I am just not use to the Hennessey material and have concern for the durability of the material. I like the corner pockets on the Hennessey Hex Fly where the tie our cord can be stored. I have made prusik loops for all the tie outs and want to use the Figure 9ís the same way I do on the DryFly on the Hex Fly. My concern is when I bunch up all the cord with the plastic Figure 9ís in the corner storage pockets, will the Hennessey Hex Fly material (70D Polyester) be durable enough over repeated use to hold up?
