    Peg-Leg,

    Do you have any photos of your WD with the pole installed?

    Thanks, ZQ. Can I be lazy and ask what you would use to seal it instead of searching the forum for the answer?

    Cheers,

    If it's Silnylon, use something like Silnet.

    That's a good question. If it is Spinn....not sure if Silnet stuff will stick to that or not. Anybody......????

    Hey PS,

    That is a great looking tarp you have. Currently I use the stock Hennessy with my Ultralight Backpacker A-Sym. I'm thinking about getting a larger tarp for my hammock This is one of the ones I'm looking at. Did you go with the Spinn or Sil-nylon ?
    Take care,
    Bluefin

Or does it matter?
    If your using the Aluminum .344 dia. Nanolites, I don't think it will matter where the pole connection point is. I'd guess the insert sleeve in the pole would make the pole stronger so not a problem if it lands at the ridgeline.
    That said, I've thought about attaching a small ring at that point to attach things to the pole, rather than my tarp ridgeline.

    Wow. What an awesome idea!

    I've seen a lot of tents where the pole ends slip into a ring in a strap, rather than into a "polepocket." Might make it a little easier to pitch. You could even have a buckle on one side so you could tension the strap up after the poles are inserted.

    This looks like a new trend in tarp mods.
    Tortoise never for a moment stopped, but went on with a slow but steady pace straight to the end of the course.
