    Question Continuous ridgeline and the Superfly?

    I don't have mine yet... but I'm anxious to get it!

    The setup video shows it on a non-continuous ridgeline. Is that because of the shape on the tarp?

    Anyone using Dutch accessories on theirs?

    I have used a CRL on my sf and use separate tie outs on the RL.
    I prefer to use a tie out on each end of the RL because it's just easier for me to get a tight setup and I don't have 30' of line to untangle.
    Which ever way you decide to go, Dutchware is the way to go.....

    Here's a couple of examples of CRL using DutchWare that I recently posted:

    The Superfly's ridgeline has a slight upward catenary cut so tying the ends to the trees or using an above the tarp CRL allows that curve to take shape. Doesn't mean you can't use a below the tarp CRL though.

    I have used all of the above...a CRL below and above my S.F., but I found that Dutch Stingers with 2 RL off of the ends of the tarp give me the best pitch and is more consistant. The Stingerz allow the tarp to settle into its CatCut RL very well.

    Brilliant, simply brilliant. I am going to try this with my wife's SF. Thanks.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    I had mine on a CRL, but found that when I pitched it as tight as Brandon recommended, the prussics would slip, even given two extra wraps - and then it also got pretty stuck and hard to move the prussic. A line on each end, with Dutchware, is the way to go if you ask me.

    I think this is what I'm leaning towards. My old tarp for backpacking and canoeing has been a Cooke Custom with a billion tie outs, so I always had a ridgeline. I'm looking forward to playing with it!
