    Specs from each website:

    eno profly RIPSTOP NYLON 126"x76" 22oz

    eno profly SILNYLON 126"x76" 13 oz

    WL tadpole SILNYLON 132"x92" 11.5 oz

    Based upon these specs it's an easy decision.

    I have a Tadpole and a Superfly. That tadpole is my go to tarp for mild weather. Great coverage, packs small, weighs little to nothing. I have had some leaking of my ridgeline seam. I sealed the inside without success. Once I get around to it, will reseal the inside and outside of the seam. It appears to be an isolated problem with me, as I have not heard any negative comments from other tadpole owners. My friend owns the profly and is not happy after seeing my tadpole.

    UPDATE: Decided to go ahead and work on that seam again, turns out it is all my fault. I used a seam sealer I thought was for silnylon and it was for urethane coated fabrics. Flaked and dry scrubbed it all off, reapplying permatex today. Sorry for any doubting on the part of WL.

    WL's work is perfect and also their service is fantastic. You can't go wrong in your choice. Enjoy the new tarp when you get it.

    I can agree with everything Swankyfly said. I have a TP and SF. Just got the SF, but the TP will be the goto in warm months. My Tadpole leaked, just a little, sealed the inside, no more problems. I used the Permatex flowable silicone on both the TP and SF side pulls. Have not had the SF in the rain, so I don't know how sealed it is.......RR

    The tadpole is lighter and offers more coverage. I'd go with it since weight is a factor to me.

    Yeah our cottage vendors make better products than eno and for a better prices to. I mean eno I think charges like well over $100 for a silnylon tarp when you can get a better tarp that is bigger and lighter for about $100 from AHE or WL
