    Warbonnet Superfly Doors

    A question for all the new Superfly owners, with the removable doors....

    I just received mine yesterday, and very excited. Always great quality and craftmanship. I have only set this up twice now....but both times, I am getting decent gaps between snaps on the doors.

    So, am I not pulling the tarp taught enough? Not steep enough? Is there a way to judge this? Dial it in? For the price, and quality, I am sure these have a better fit than I am acheiving in my set-ups.... So, a little help and guidance?

    Eventhough I don't own one, my suspicion would be that it isn't pulled taut enough, particularly at the bottom. Give it to me for the weekend and I'll report back.

    the doors themselves shouldn't be staked tight, but if you pull the tarp body quite tight, the fabric between the snaps should tighten up fairly well, the superfly (all my tarps) are designed to be pitched really tight.

    I was worried about that at first too. Tighten the main guys and your good to go. I've had it through a few storms now and the doors do a great job keeping out wind and blowing rain. I'm loving this tarp.
