    I do for my knot bones, figure 9's and tarp flyz. With Stingerz, I may not.

    For tarp ridgelines, ya likee stingers and tarp Flyz from Dutch
    As for continuous or two-piece, umm, well i use both (on different tarps).

    two-piece is less fiddling for me; but, continuous allows easier adjusting for centering. hyoh!

    I found the 9s slipped when I put tension on my 1.75mm tarp ridge line, I had to tie a half hitch behind them to keep them secure. I guess I'm the only one who had this problem.

    I started using the Nite-Ize Cam Jam locks. Work just like a mini Harken block on a sailboat. Put a lark's head into the line, run the tag end around the tree and hook the lark's head with the cam jam, then tighten it up.

    I used to use all the Nitize stuff and still use a LOT of their mini sBiners, however, I just switched out two ridge lines to Tarp Flyz and Dutch Hooks; The 9biners worked perfectly fine for me, no slippage, they were great, but there's a quality and class/refinement about the Dutch gear that is in a whole other class. One works, the other is pure art. The dutch gear on my line is lighter, smaller, works better, etc.

    I run continuous ridge lines for a number of reasons. You can adjust your tarp easier, I feel it supports the tarp better since my large tarp has a center pull on the ridge line. I used 1.75mm lash-it (gray) with the dutch gear and it all blends in together.

    Basically it's perfection.

    I don't see as much practical use for the Stingerz on a continuous ridge line, I would only use those if I was tying out from the end but even then, I don't take my ridge line on and off so I simply don't need the Stingerz. I now recommend a dutch hook on one end and a Tarp Flyz on the other; match that set up with whoopie slings and it's all lightweight, no interference between ridge line and hammock suspension...etc.

    PS, there is a difference between Zing-it and Lash-it. I'd bought Zing-it for tie outs; it's almost stiff; you can bend it and it wants to hold it's shape. Lash-it is more supple.

    I use flyz on the 4 corner tieouts of my cuben tarp. Went through a 70+ mph storm in the smokies with it. 1 limb the size of my forearm fell on 1 tieout and knocked it loose. I just reached out from under the tarp and pulled the limb off and hooked the line back on. Only time I've had 1 come loose.
