    Superfly wait list

    That will probably be me as of tonight.. Kinda an early birthday present for myself.. Really don't mind waiting, other than the waiting part..
    I read quite awhile back Brandon doesn't seal the pullouts? What do you folks use for that? and is it easy to find? Thanks in advance..
    We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..

    I've not sealed the panel pulls on any of my SuperFlies. Any leakage that occurs will run down the tarp wall and drip from the bottom edge anyway, so it has no impact on me or my hammock. Honestly can't say I've ever even seen any leakage, but I generally only take a SuperFly during winter...rain isn't much of an issue and snow doesn't leak much.

    I used my Superfly unsealed in heavy rain this fall. While they did leak a little, a few drops just ran down the tarp or dropped directly on the ground away from me like Brandon said.

    hey guys, I just got my first hammock for christmas. Woo hoo!! Next up...tarp. I'm pretty much set on sticking with Warbonnet for this purchase as well. I plan on having doors as the odds of a rainy night or strong winds seem about 50/50 for nice weather. Question is whether to go with the mambajamba or the superfly. Please point me in the right direction.

    If you feel you want doors for stormy nights...I would just go with the superfly that has doors built in...then there's no fussing with added doors yadda yadda...I may be a little biased as I own one of the new SF's with built in doors....and I HIGHLY recommend it.

    I am also currently waiting on my superfly. I noticed on the warbonnet Brandon recommends just tying the tarp out from the ends. Is this what everyone does, or do some of you have a continuous rideline.

    I know it doesn't really matter, but I would prefer a continuous ridgeline. Just wondering how all of you have yours set up.

    The thought behind no continuous ridgeline is that you don't want rope rubbing your previously waterproof seams. That and the weight.

    This other camp maintain they've got it better by being able to move the tarp along the ridgeline. The rubbing is solved by running the ridgeline over the tarp. In snow conditions, shug has mentioned in his video liking to run the ridge under the tarp to prevent collapse. (weight issue solved by using crazy light crazy strong cord)

    I don't use a ridgeline with my tarps. I've tried, but just don't see the advantages for me. Superfly will do just fine with each end tied-out.

    that's reassuring to know. I know shock cord is good for the panel pull tie out points, but what is best for the ridgeline and guyout points? was thinking of using zing it or triptease.

    Either of those will work fine. I just use cheap nylon utility line on mine. I would rather those lines be the failure point of my system. Waaaay cheaper than the tarp and easier to field fix too.
