    i have used my WB BMJ for 3 seasons now and string up just like Brandon suggests (lines off the ends of the tarp) and have never had any issues and it doesn't show any issues or look any different than the day i got it

    and it has had a ton of use in those 3 years, i would estimate i have used for day hikes and overnights a combined 200 times easily, if not more, with the majority being overnights, and many of those were in some pretty good storms with high wind and rain

    many many people on here use either the BMJ or the Superfly and since i've been a member i can not recall one person having any issues with failure of one of Brandons ridgelines on his tarps, i could be wrong but i don't remember any

    I have been using the attack to the end method for the two years I have had my superfly. Recently got the dutch bling for it and when I took the line off the tarp I noticed a small tear at one end. Apparently you do need to be a bit careful with the stress you put on them. I am adding a bit of shock cord there now to allow for some stretch and what not.

    Postal - did you have your tarp ridgeline above or below your Superfly?

    Neither. I used Brandon's video method. Just attached to the ends.

    if you do use a ridgeline with warbonnet tarps ( i don't ) you probably want to have the ridgeline above the tarp, brandons tarps have a slight cat cut to the ridgeline that arches up towards the sky, if the ridgeline is underneath, it would negate some of the tautness of the tarp i would think......others may know better since i only use his recommended method of lines off the ends

    Yes, indeed.....x 2.. And by doing it this way, it is no different stress wise than the single tie out method.... At least that is my story..........

    I have now added shock cord to my tarp rings that my stingers then attach to. This has fixed my issue. That and self tensioning lines on the stakes and it is now fairly smooth sailing.

    If you want to save a couple grams tie it off on each end the way Brandon's video shows. if you want a little easier set-up and adjustment use a continuous ridgeline, under if you need extra support (snow) and over if not. As long as you set-up whichever method you choose correctly, there really isn't that big of a difference.

    Just my two cents, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I would imagine that if you set up your WB tarp with the method Brandon recommends and it fails, Brandon would probably replace or repair it. I think silnylon tarps can take a lot of stress without breaking. That said, fabric does age, especially when exposed to UV radiation, so I probably will fail sometime, but only after years of use. I would take care with tree selection, though. Thin but tall trees might move a lot in high winds, and put on additional stress on the tarp. I guess this would be a much more likely fail-scenario than overtightening the RL. Btw, all my WB tarps still look good, and I'm always setting them up drum tight. I used to use a CRL, but have switched to a split RL (Dutch Stingerz) last year.
