    Cool Jacks 'R' Better 11x10 tarp

    Hey everyone,
    I recently purchased a Jacks 'R' Better 11x10 tarp and need some pointers on pitching it well. It does not have Cat cuts and it is a rather large tarp. I was wondering if anyone else out there could give me some pointers or had som pictures of theirs in action.

    TraumaRN,

    That tarp has two cat cuts on each of the 11 foot sides...

    There are several pictures of different pitches on the JRB web site...We like the "Baker lean to" pitch for its full side wind protection and walk up convience...

    Here is a picture of mine pitched with 11' ridgeline. I just use figure 9's all the way around.

    That's great! What are you using pole-wise? Weight?
