    Tarp Flyz on Guylines?

    Curious if anyone else has given this a try?

    Was out testing this weekend & put tarp flyz on 2 of the guylines. basically comes from D ring - went around stake & back up to Flyz. Sat inside tarp & was really easy to reach out -- unhook line to pull tighter & then tighten it back on the Flyz.

    I don't like plastic gadgets so I usually tie down guylines like warbonnet guy shows in one of his video's. Since I know the flyz held my ridgeline in a few good storms -- Was curious how the flyz would work on guylines & besides it was more fun than cleaning the garage


    here's a couple of pics...

    Nice. I saw a 4pack of guylines with Nite Ize figure 9's at ****'s Sporting Goods, but there is no such thing as too much Dutchware!

    I like it. Suprised noone has said anything about this use sooner. Seems so obvious now.

    I rigged my tarp lines up like this last week, and will be taking it out this weekend for it's first run. I wasn't going to say anything until I'd used it a night or two. Glad I'm not the only one thinking this way.

    Always looking for more uses for the flyz!

    Black Wolf has something similar in his pics. I like it. Simple, makes sense.

    I've been using something similar, I also got the idea from black wolf at the Ark. hang. I tied mine on the tarp tieout instead of the stake though.

    @Laser. I have the Flyz on the guyline - not the stake.

    I looped the guyline around the D ring with a larks head - down to stake, went around it once then back up to flyz.

    I like it. very simples. strong. - but the jury is still out for me. I'll leave those 2 on to test next time I get out. Been suggested that I larks head to D ring & marlin spike hitch to stake. I'll try that on the other guylines.

    the doors I have a loop at the end of the guyline that attaches to stake with prussik on line to I can adjust easily.

    @Joey - pics or it didn't happen! Would like to hear what you think after you try it in the woods

    @2Tallwv? you have a link to sample of black wolf pics?

    Interesting solution. I still love my prussik at the tarp solution. Can't beat being able to adjust from inside the tarp.

    Same here - why I haven't tried the flyz across my guylines as of yet.

    I use the marlin spike hitch on the stake method and I love it, really simple and you know it's not going to slip.

    I really need to try the tarp flyz though, it would be nice to have more adjustability. Unfortonitly I only have one spare fly to test it with though
