    Got me a 4 season cuben tarp on the way...

    I ordered 75 feet of zline and 25 feet of shock cord with it. Is that going to be enough for all of the tie outs? I already have a Dutch edition tarp ridge line from Whoopieslings as well. My hammock is a HH so I think I could hook the ridge tie outs to the doohickeys on it?

    Hopefully I'm not picturing this all wrong in my head!

    Thanks!

    Congrats on the cuben tarp!...yer gonna love it...had mine up in the woods 4 times now...one thing Im kickn around for all of my tie outs, is using shock cord only!! anybody ever rig it this way? seems to me it would make going from porch mode to storm mode a breeze!?!? also opening and closing doors easier with line locks added.

    if you got the dutch ridgeline id go that route and not the doohickies. on my 4 season (not cuben) i have 10' on the 4 tie out and about 6' of shock cord on each door. i have a cord lock so i can adjust the length of the shock cord much like the tie outs on a black bird.

    Congrats on a great tarp! Be conservative with that shock cord. You'll find you don't need much and it is weighty compared to your guylines. Rigging adds up fast with so many D-rings. Also stakes add up quick, I never use more than six for the tarp, usually less.
