    tadpole advice

    looking for some input on the tadpole. I currently have a big daddy with no panel pulls and a AHE Toxaway with side panel pulls. I have an 11'x 65" Roaming Gnome that is my main hammock now (1.6 oz single layer ACU Camo.. best freakin hammock i have ever slept in!!), and was wondering if I should go with the 11' or 12 ridge line. I have a 12' on the Tox and 11' on the big daddy. I can't tell a huge difference coverage wise but with the smaller tadpole I thought I would ask. i like that the Tox is longer but the cat cut is pretty severe on it so not that much extra coverage. I like the panel pulls on the Tox but I don't know if I need them on a tarp as narrow as the tadpole. Any and all advice would be much appreciated, thanks

    I use 11' hammocks (108" SRL) and there is plenty of coverage with my 11" TadPole w/o side pulls.

    11' ok

    I use the 11' Tadpole over a 11' snipe hammock. The 11' Tadpole can be set closer to the hammock in bad weather which also allows the bottom edges to be closer to the ground. No panel pulls on mine as its in the porch mode in good weather and set close to the sides of the hammock in bad.

    I use an 11' and have never had any problems. I got pull outs on my second tadpole. I've needed them a time or two, so I'd say get the pull outs. (but that's just me)
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong
