    so is the Maccat standard enough?

    Or do I still need something longer? Standard wide enough? I see it is alot lighter than the eno, does the standard maccat cover more that the eno dryfly?

    Anything covers more than the ENO DryFly. It sucks. And not just a little. A lot. Really. You're better off going with the Deluxe MacCat, IMO. You get more coverage with very little additional weight penalty.

    I've seen a DryFly set up... I couldn't figure out why anyone would want something like that except it does look cool with all the cuts and curls. But sheesh.. the idea is too cover a hammock, not play peekaboo.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    No sweat. Neither show is funny, so it's no big deal.
