    I'm torn between being able to splice, or the stiffness/no-tangle.

    I made some guy lines for my Edge tarp over the weekend, and I spliced eyes into each end and used #0 S-biners for quick attachment. My fiance loved the idea (she uses the blue Edge tarp now), and they held up to 50MPH winds we had yesterday (though one of the S-biners gates popped).

    I guess I'll just have to try both and see what works for me.

    I use it with my Spinn UL tarp from him. I got some of the mini cord locks that the hammock forums store sells. Everything held really well in the insane wind I was in the other night.
    If there's two ways to take my comments, assume it's the lighter and funnier of the two.
