    Thanks for the pics. I now know what mine looks like set up. I also got one for Christmas but have not been able to set it up as it has poured rain every time I get a day off

    Thanks for the pics. Is it just me or does that ridgeline have an odd curve to it? It doesn't appear to be a continuous catenary curve to me. Does it pitch nice and taught or do you find the center to be a little more floppy than the edges?


    I'm weighing my options (considering a bmj or an oes maccat deluxe for my wbbb. Lots of acronyms there but y'all get my drift.

    Here's a shot of both the OES Deluxe and the Warbonnet BMJ (with doors attached on one end) over Blackbirds. OES on the left and WB on the right. Both are hung with continuous ridge lines running under the tarp, so you don't see the ridge curve you see when hung with a CRL over the top or directly from the tie outs.


    Either one will provide great coverage to a WBBB.
