    i can say ive had the superfly from WB and now have the Big Daddy from WL and marty is excellent at service and quality. hes an undiscovered gem here, and because of that his turn around time is second to none. the OMW tarp is the same "base" shape as the Big Daddy I have and it is NICE.

    So, speaking directly i cant say anything about the OMW itself, but his tarps, service and quality in general is outstanding.

    i currently ouw a wb superfly and it is a great tarp. however,
    i will be selling it shortly in favor of the old man winter.
    i have been under an old man winter and find it better suited for my style.
    the omw is VERY well made and the addition of a center stake out point gives it an almost rigid setup.
    i would have already made the switch but logistics made me wait until the first week of Nov to make the change.

    Ive got one... I just finished seam sealing it last night but have had it up several times. It pitches very taut. I did not have to pull my tensioners out all the way to get a tight pitch and the wind was howling on one occasion when I set it up. It provides ample coverage all the way around and there is enough fabric on the doors to not need a steep pitch to bring them together.

    I thought I had some pics of it staked out, but only hanging off the RL.

    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    Had my OLM down to 30 degrees with Ice and a dash of snow on it, wind gusting over 40mph and love the way it covers and protect me...can't go wrong with this tarp,,so many ways to hang it with so many options. It will take a beating and come out like new.

    No OMW for me yet. Soon! I do have a Tadpole and I can tell you the construction is top of the line. Email response and time to delivery are unbelievably fast. WL is a great company all around!
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.
