    ILLUSTRATION - Rigging A Tarp With DutchWare Stingerz

    New blog illustration on using the new DutchWare Stingerz™.

    This is my current favorite of the DutchWare hardware line for tarp set-ups. I like that I can clip this to any tarp with ease. It's the big brother to the Tarp Flyz and wraps in a similar fashion.

    Mine are only 108 in. (274 cm.) long on each side (9 ft./2.75 m.).

    More and more, I'm hanging at around 12 ft (3.6 m) between anchor points. With a 11 ft (3.3 m) tarp ridge line and 9.5 ft (3 m) hammock, that's plenty of distance, and I don't need overly long straps, suspension, or ridge line. My Whoopie slings, when I use them, are short, maybe 3-4 ft (1-1.2 m) long.

    What cordage works best with stingerz?

    I'm with you on the 12' spacing, btw, and this rigging enables that.

    i agree too,,, shorter the better. ~12' is premium.

    i ask only because my curiosity leads me to some old growth firs that quickly eat up line--- regardless sometimes of distance.

    85% of the time i can hike on to another site, but sometimes the group dynamic settles on a spot, and if i'm slow choosing trees, or the tenters
    pick rules.... i work with what i have. sort of like choosing to carry hmmk suspension extenders. what can i say...i like being in camp with buddies.

    I totally understand. Here in Flagstaff we have huge Ponderosa pine and sometimes my line won't reach around them. I usually carry several feet of line in my pack for emergencies. If I know I'm going to an area where typical tree diameter is large, I plan accordingly. Most of the time I can find a new spot, but just plan ahead and be prepared!

    I have a blackbird and I find the best distance to hang it is 15' to 18'. Hamhocker has a JRB Bridge Hammock and hangs it at 15'. With a tarp that is 11 and now 12' I can't see how you hang in 12' between the trees

    Zing-it and Lash-it will both fit. I use braided mason line.
