    Superfly guy lines

    I just ordered a superfly tarp and I was wondering what you all use for guy lines. Was looking at JRB STL , the whoopie sling tarp guy line and just Dyneema line. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the HF! Some people use mason's line for guy outs as well (cheap solution for starting). As well - Shane's :

    or headchange4u's method:

    Those might be worth a look.

    There are a lot of options. I decided on Shane's design for my Superfly and I love it. I used some Kelty triptease reflective cord on mine, it's plenty strong.

    What Brandon sells on his site is also good stuff. I use it for my 4 cornors and 4 panel pulls.

    I use this method. I stole it from Dylan when I saw it a group hang. I use Zing-It or Mason's line. Hope that helps.
