    Tad Daddy Tarp

    I am torn on which one to get. I currently have a JRB 132"x96" Spinn Tarp, but selling. My question was, Is the extra 3oz of weight of the BD worth the additional coverage over the TP? Im kind of an ounce counter these days, but would rather carry the extra 3oz if it is worth it.

    Update:

    I ended up having Marty make me a custom tarp. 132"x105" called the Tad Daddy !!

    Yeah, I am kinda leaning towards the Big Daddy. If my JRB Spinn does not sell I will just keep it.

    Well since I cant make up my mind I am having Marty make me a custom tarp. Its larger than a Tad Pole, but smaller than a Big Daddy.

    I will call it the Tad Daddy !

    Marty is great! What are the dimensions of your Tad Daddy? Be sure to post pics of it when you get it.
