    Best pole? Depends on how much you want it to weigh. Fiberglass poles work just fine but you can get custom to fit carbon fiber poles from Fibraplex if you are counting grams/ounces.
    And in case you use a CRL (continuous ridgeline) and need to stop the pole from going fore/aft you can attach a prussik onto the CRL and affix it to the pole stopping the pole from moving one way or the other; this negates any sewing into the tarp ridgeline.
    Not long ago I received a cuben tarp from one of our well known vendos with pole pockets and a tie off for the pole--after setting up the tarp I discovered the tie off was no where near the center! Must have been a bad day to make the tarp-the prussik was a quick simple effective fix.

    Dumb question

    I have a dumb question. Does the typical metal back yard hammock stand work for hanging a HH Exped? Also the kite store "Into The Wind" has all sorts of carbon and fiberglass rods and connections for this kind of set up.

    That's really nice!

    You guys do great work! Looks like a totally different tarp.

    Tim had extentions made for the ends of the hammock stand so the hammock could be hung higher. He now can use it for both his HH Ultralight, and HH Ultralight Explorer.

    I have two of these HH tarps never liked how they hung over my hammock even with a CRL and not attaching to the hammock as HH instructs. This pole mod fixes that problem completely. Great summer tarp.
