    How much would you pay?

    With the recent gap left in our tarp choices by Sportsman'a Guide I have been researching light, low cost, cat cut tarps. I believe I have found a tarp maker willing to do business.

    Thre sizes to choose from: Large 14'X12' Medium 12'X9.5' and Small 9.5'x9.5'

    Looks like they may run about $10-$12 more than the SG tarps. They are made by a cottage shop in Canada. Right now they have Brown, Green and Black, just not all together (no camo, yet).

    I am having one shiped to me to check out the quality.

    So would it be worth it for 10-12 more dollars?

    That is all the 411 I have, no weights or fabric type or anything.

    I think there would be much interest in cat cut tarps around that price.

    I need a new tarp like I needed a new netless Safari....and like the netless Safari I would go ahead and buy one for the right price. A 14'x12' cat cut tarp in the $50 - $75 range would seal the deal.

    I'd buy 'em as stocking stuffers

    let us know where from in Canada, and I will see what kind of deals I could rig us for shipping.
    I would be interested in at least one or two also.

    Sounds really interesting to me too. Especially since I'm in Canada.

    a 14 x 12 in sil under $100 would get my money.

    So is the GG tarp gone for good?
