    Thanks for the tip. I will put Dutch Flyz on the shopping list. Looks like they are easy to use. Currently I have the figure 9 prussiced to the CRL so I can do very similar adjustment as shown in the video. Then I can adjust the position of the tarp along the CRL using the soft shackles prussiced the CRL and attached to each end of the tarp.

    My tie outs are a little different. I have Zing-It loops tied via prussics along the guy lines then put stakes through the loop. Very easy adjustment. At the tarp end I use loops of shock cord with the zing-it larks headed to them for simple self tensioning system.
    I am looking at buying a superfly and emailed Brandon recently as to see what the best ridge line set up was. He recommended to me that it is best to tie out from each end of the tarp to the tree rather then going over or under with a crl because it takes to much tension off the seam. Looks like the crl is working fine for you though. I wonder it Dutch stingerz would work well with this recommendation.

    Chew,

    I can add/release tension plus adjust location of the tarp along the CRL using the soft shackles attached at each end of the ridge seam that are prussiced to the CRL. So I can pull it as tight as if I was not using a CRL. Clear as mud? If a picture would help I will post one.

    I like the CRL for hanging stuff from but it certainly is not necessary.

    Several Dutchified things are on my list to try.

    Thanks bamabert. I do understand your set up on the crl. I assumed this would be the best way to hang it as well but Brandon from Warbonnet said it was best to hang it the other way. Maybe because even though you can pull it tight with your soft shackles it might not be the same as having some of the load on the crl vs all of the load on the seam of the tarp? Chew.

    Let's see if we can get Brandon to clarify.

    Brandon, what about the SF ridge seam benefits from having it tied at both ends and pulled taught versus using a CRL?

    Thanks,
    BB

    Look at that cute gear hammock. Looks like a step for all the animals to climb up and peak in at you!

    That looks very similar to my hammock setup. My poles are bamboo though.
