    I'm glad to hear you are liking yours, I just received mine (along with the BB and underquilt) Monday, so I haven't had a chance to try them out yet - but I am impressed with how compact everything is.

    I'm almost afraid to really unfold everything out and try it, I probably won't be able to neatly fold it back up for carrying with me .

    Big fan of the Superfly here. Me and that thing go way back.
    Still, I'm with gunner76 on the "never" bit. A Superfly was one of my very first tarps, but it sure wasn't my last.

    Anybody want to start a friendly betting pool?

    Sure. I'll bet your Superfly this isn't the only tarp she buys.

    Got my superfly earlier this week, have to say I am amazed at the weight and construction! just got done rigging all the guylines up with braided masons line and shockcord loops ..all larksheaded on and have four 8 ft shockcords for the pull outs. just ordered some zing it from dutch thinking that will be better then the masons line.. i had it set up in winter mode and just a frame mode.. LOVE IT!!!!!!!! that and my new switchback are going with me this weekend..
    sometimes gear is my best friend..
