    OMW with polemod pics?

    Anyone got a picture of an OMW tarp with the pole mod installed?

    Marty & Co make a helluva tarp. But the images on their website leave me unsatisfied.

    It is a simple modification. I cut some footprint tieouts off a used up REI tent foorprint I had. They have the small grommet rings for smaller poles. I stitched up the nylon ribbing to complete the loop and then looped them through the center tieouts of my OMW. I then purchased a replacement pole set from Bass Pro (ultralight aluminum poles) for about 20 dollars. They come with everything you need already put togehter. I reduced the pole sets down to three sections which is about 54 inches keeping the shock cord inside. I then place these in the small holes in the tie-outs above the OMW and it opens it up nicely. I will try and put a picture set up so you can see. It took about 30 minutes to do everything. The poles store nicely in my pack.
    Hope this helps.

    Thx. Got the kit from WL and will post a few pics when I'm able. Opens it up great and the CF poles are sub-featherweight. Sweet!

    Here's the one I'm talkin bout. Two superlight carbon poles that go over the top of the tarp from pullout to pullout. Shown here it's a pretty flat roof though I expect to get more tension by using a CRL over the top of the tarp.

    For those who have the OMW center pole mod, do you find it necessary to stake out the middle/bottom tieout when the pole is in place? I like the tarp, but I'd prefer to use just 4-stakes.
