I've had my Superfly tarp for a couple of years and have always pitched it over top of a continuous ridgeline, mainly so it is supported by the ridgeline to minimize fabric stress. I've never tied off directly to the tarp, worried the fabric might tear or wear out, especially in windy conditions. I just ordered a new Edge tarp and decided to try tying off straight to the tarp. I'm (a little) less concerned with fabric stress and possible tearing with this tarp since it is much smaller and less susceptible to wind loads, but it's in the back of mind. Tying off right to a tarp sure seems like a popular pitching method, but I wonder if anyone ever has issues with tarps tearing, tabs ripping out, premature wear, etc. Experience?
