    CRL Question

    I was reading some past posts and started thinking... If I was running dedicated CRLs for each tarp, would I need an S-biner to connect my prussics to my tarp? What if I just eliminated that extra bit of hardware?

    Also, is shock cord considered a good choice for use as the aforementioned prussics? They were considered a while back and I was wondering what the current thoughts might be on them.

    Dave, Yes, you could get rid of those S-biners. I hook mine straight to the prussic knots. I use a shoft shackle prussic though, that way I can open them up to take the tarp off if I need to.

    If your talking about using shock cord for a prussic knot, I'm not sure how that would work out. I would think that after it is put under allot of tension it would be a bare to move or loosen.
