Couple months ago Angry Sparrow said he would like something better than the figure9 for connecting the tarp. He came up with a basic design that we kicked around for a month or 2. The problem I have with the fig9s is they bend and they don't do well with real thin line like zing it as I would still have to use a backup knot. Sparrow just wanted to end the corporate greed of nitize and do battle with their ninja hitmen. Anyhow this is what we came up with;
They are called Tarp Flyz and I am making a very limited batch to "Pay it Forward". Next 4 post requesting them will have a set sent for free. I will need you to pm me your address. You should have Dynaglide or Zing It as it works best with very thin hollow braid line They are made from titanium and weigh about 2 grams.
