Shock Cord as Tarp Guylines???
Anyone ever do this? its a thought that occurred to me today. I would imagine the elasticity of the shock cord would keep a very tight pitch on the tarp. it would also allow you to not need much overall length for each line due to the stretchiness. am i wrong?
I have seen people attach it the the end of a line as seen in this thread here
Shug did/does this. Also side guyouts on many hammocks do this. Shouldn't be a big issue to use completely shock cord guyouts. Just watch out for stake slingshot effect.
hahaha true. didnt think of that. i guess just having the shock cord on the end of each line would make it more likely to keep both eyes

Always check the "stickys" ...lots of good info there. You'll find them in each category at the top of threads.
