    Superfly Question (side pulls)?

    Maybe this is a perpetually asked question, but please bear with me.
    When rigging a Superfly, how and with what material (and how much) would you recommend rigging the side pulls? I'm thinking about using lash-it, but am certainly not dead set in any direction. I've seen a few pictures with tie outs going to poles, then to the ground but I'm not fully comprehending the way it's being done.
    Any input would help this new hanger a great deal!

    That answers that question...but generates another...lol.
    I was planning on using snake skins as a stuff sack/quick deploy for the tarp. Is there any harm in this, and any issues with tangling if I were to leave the lines that go out to the trees attached? Solutions, if so?

    I leave all my lines attached to my Superfly. I figure 8 and tie them off first. And the snake skins have no problems sliding right over all the rigging. And I can still get the whole setup into the original stuff sack no problem.

    That's what I was looking for! You guys are awesome. Thanks for answering my inane questions!

    I'm thinking about using the poles for porch mode, but I might just shoot for finding some sticks in the field. Never been big on hiking poles...but I'm ripe for conversion lol.

    Sticks do work fine! But same as you I was like " I don't need no stupid hiking poles!" then I bought some to take on a Minnesota spring hang that had just dumped a foot of snow. They were a life saver! And Now I love them! I don't even care if they look dorky

    I use shock cord coupled with zing-it for my side pull outs. I like it so there is a bit of give. If available, it's nice to tie them off to nearby trees or branches.

    I use nanolight poles to hook to my pull outs.

    I use 3ft lengths of shockcord on my side pull outs, with a small loop tied in the end to slip over a pole handle or stick. Then I take a 6ft length of 2mm dyneema down to the ground.

    It pitches okay with a single pole but is much better if you can tie off to two separate conveniently located trees. If the sil gets wet it tends to sag quite a bit in the centre with a single pole. Not enough to reduce the space created around the hammock but I find it drops the height a touch.

    I use static cord on my cuben tarps as they don't really budge much in the wet.

    I use 1/4" poly rope for mine and I just stuff the works into the sack. It does get tangled sometimes, but I figure the time I spend untangling is probably less than I would spend coiling or stuffing the rope into a sewn on pocket. I like to tie the pull outs in an upwards direction (as opposed to staking them down), so I tend to use spots about chest high on trees for my tie of points. You'll love your Superfly, but bring lots of stakes.
