    Thumbs up Superfly with 2Q/ZQ sewn on doors mod!

    A few weeks ago I volunteered to send 2Q/ZQ my Superfly for experimentation of sewing on the removable doors. My tarp had the last version of the removable door kit that Brandon had offered before switching the Superfly's over to permanent doors. Brandon has since switched the Superfly's over again to come standard with permanently attached doors.

    ZQ did an incredible job as usual of sewing on the door kit and I must say I am very happy with the outcome. It's got the little toggles for securing the doors when you roll them up which is a nifty touch. Same high quality sewing job I got with my MacCat Deluxe that I sent for the sewn on door mod last spring.

    Here are a couple of pics with the tarp strung up in my apartment. I plan to do a video review next time I can get out. Maybe I'll set up both tarps to show a side by side comparison.

    I'm not certain that 2Q/ZQ will be offering this mod in the future or not but they told me I could post a review of it to gauge interest to see if it would be a service worth offering to their line.

    What a tease. I would love to have my doors sewn on. I guess it's gonna be a game of wait and see.

    First, we were waiting to see what Pizza thought of the doors. Sounds like he will be doing further evaluations. My other concern is the consistency of the Superfly tarp and door size/shape. I wouldn't want to make a new edge pattern with each set of doors. I'm sure Brandon uses a pattern for each, so that really shouldn't be an issue.

    We really want feed back to see if this is a service that would be of interest, and worth offering on our website.

    Feel free to PM us with any interest/questions anyone has.

    I'm still on the fence, part of me wants them sewn on and part of me likes the idea of being able to leave them at home.
    Experts are the ones who think they know everything. Geniuses are the ones who know they don't.

    Gather round your hearts the tinder,
    lay the oak and pine together,
    kindle all that is within you with a warm and cheerful spirit.

    if they weighed a pound a piece I can see that..I'm all about the doors..I like the countless....well... multiple..configuration that's possible... batten down the hatches if a squall happens...or too close the doors if you needed a few moments of privacy in a crowded camp site...

    Mighty fine rig pizza. Sweet for the winter here for sure.
    I noticed that you lost some audio at 2:40ish .... I think it is an iMovie 11 bug. If you detach the audio from the clip it is a good work-around. I use control/click on the clip and you will get the options.
    Good job on the video!!!
