    I have the Claytor diamond fly that came with my hammock. I don't particularly care for it. No real reason, I just like my MacCat & Superfly better.

    Yeah, your right on the cat cuts not being necessary, but.....like you said I will do a very gentle cut just to see what difference, if any, it will have.
    The SG diamond tarps have a psuedo cat cut. This is done by changing the angle where the bottom triangle is attached. This allows a taut pitch.

    diamond Tarp

    I have used my 8x10 golite tarp on the diamond in some pretty nasty wet weather and was well protected. I really really like the fact that you just have two tie downs instead of four. Ok, I'm lazy!

    I'm new to the hammock camping thing, next weekend I'll be trying it out. Set it up in the back yard. Seems really nice for the money.
    I ordered one this morning...same day shipping...gotta love that.
