    Anything Better than WB Edge Tarp?

    I currently have a WB Superfly, but I want something lighter for Summer backpacking. I want a Hammock Gear CF Hex tarp but I can't afford to spend that much.
    So far I've landed on the WB Edge. I need a tarp that is 10 ounces or less, costs less than $110 and has reasonable coverage. I currently have a WB Traveler hammock, but I might make or buy an 11' hammock in the future. So far it seems like the Edge is "edging out" the competition (pun is always intended). Other suggestions?

    Well,,if you want something lighter than 10 oz's,,I don't think your going to find it the same size as the Edge as the only thing you have left out is cuben. If you check all the other supplyers, you might find a longer tarp, most are 11-12 oz . Check Arrowhead, check Wilderness logics, check Underground quiilts. They all make nice tarps, but as for weight, cuben is going to be lighter. Edge tarp is 126" long, and I prefer more coverage especially if your considering a 11' hammock.

    my favorite tarp is my TadPole from Wilderness Logics.
    the TP is 6" longer at the RL so it provides a little more coverage. the advertized wt. is 11.5 including the stuff sack.
    it's a sweet tarp.

    I get good coverage on my 11' with my tadpole. can not say how the edge covers as I do not have one, but I know Brandon makes a great tarp also... aren't these choices so much fun to make ??

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I think the additional coverage is worth the extra weight for this tarp. It will still be easier to set up and lighter than my Superfly. I'm also considering a bug net and lighter UQ for the Summer. I'll ask questions about those in another thread.
