    @dant8ro prussiks are my goto

    @pj -- 1 flyz is all ya need to test!

    @raiffnuke. thanks for posting the pics. I think between the 2 -- Turmenator's method would be my choice or directly on the line. easy to reach from under tarp. its pulling on the tarp instead of what appears to be pull on the stake in Black wolfs method. with flyz on line or tarp -- if tree is close by no need for stake anyway.

    Just more reason to go out & test more!

    Same here - why I haven't tried the flyz across my guylines as of yet.

    How is this better than Line-Lok?

    They work really well.

    The Tarp Flyz work a treat on guylines, I've done around 15 nights now with them.

    I'm testing them alongside some nylon cleats (not the line locs).

    Thread here

    FWIW, If I was using a tarp with only corner ties, the Flyz would be ideal IMO. With my 16 atachment points, they become a little tedious to release though.

    If Dutch sees this thread, I reckon he could knock something up out of ally or ti, very similar to the Flyz that would be perfect.

    @ Shadow Alpha,
    Sorry, I meant I don't tie the flyz to the stake like Black Wolf. I don't tie to the guyline either. I tie to the tieout.

    Always looking for more uses for the flyz!
