Funny you should ask.... I was just about to post a link to some pics. Bottom line, I most likely strung it up too tight. I didnt think it was too tight, no tighter than alot of pictures I see on here of other people's tarps. Ive never hung a nylon tarp so maybe my expectations of its strength were overestimated. Heres a link to the photos....
