    Panel Pull

    I'm thinking about ordering a MacCat Standard and i have a quick question about ordering panel pulls. If i want one on each side do I select x1 panel pull or does each side count individually and I should order x2 panel pulls?
    If you don't try due to fear of failure you've already failed due to fear.

    I believe you need x2. I ordered a 12x10 a couple months ago and asked for x4 or 2 per side. Just put a note in the order to clarify it if you want.

    x2 would be correct.

    Good thinking. The panel pulls are amazing on the standard for wind. Just don't expect them to make it much roomier. Its still a fairly small tarp.

    I ended up ordering the deluxe with one pull on each side.

    You will not be disappointed!!

    I just ordered the Ultra for my switchback with the 4 additional panel pulls. I can't wait to get the tarp. Brian was extremely helpful during the whole process of deciding and ordering and figuring out what I want!

    What are your experiences with panel pulls on a MacCat Deluxe? Do they increase the space appreciably as it's bigger than the Standard?

    I have them on the standard, and have seen them on the delux. I wouldn't say considerably. More than anything the stop the wind from pushing the tarp in which can create considerably less space. Also the sag experienced in the morning will not be a big issue with them either. I feel any tarp 7' in width (maybe even 6') stands to benefit greatly with panel tie outs. For space but more to guarentee the space is not taken by the wind.

    Since you have a Standard, would you recommend that or the Deluxe ?
