Great mod! Do you think the ridgeline could benefit from some type of padding where the poles come in to contact with it or is that of little concern?
When I say padding I mean on the pole, not the ridgeline.

I recently moved to using whoopie slings and soft shackles on my tarp. Similar to my hammock, but using Lash-it instead of the Amsteel Blue on the hammock.
No more continuous ridge. This method makes for a lighter quicker setup and tear down than a prusik or metal clips on a CRL.
I had considered using Amsteel Blue for the soft shackles only. I thought they might be easier at tear down time, but the Lash-it shackles unhook quite easily when you use the quick release thread method.
A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.
