    WL Tadpole coverage with WL Snipe?

    I just ordered my WL Tadpole tarp (and shortly thereafter received notification that it's already on the way!) and am looking to upgrade from my current ENO Doublenest to a WL Snipe. Given that the Snipe and Tadpole are both the same length (132"), I am wondering whether folks have tried this combo out in the rain and, if so, whether the coverage is sufficient for downpours. I realize that a 132" hammock is really only about 110" when hung with a .83 ratio ridgeline, which leaves only about 11" on each side covered. Is that sufficient with a Tadpole? I live in South Texas, where rain is pretty scarce lately, so I'm really only needing a tarp to protect from the rare but ferocious T-storms we get down here.

    I've got the tadpole and use a lite owl (same length as the snipe) with no problems at all. They are great tarps and provide awesome coverage. You will be very happy!

    +1 on what Caveman said.
    the 132 TadPole is a perfect match and the combo of TP&Snipe/LiteOwl/NightOwl is hard to beat.

    Thanks for the info, guys. Seems like I'm going to be happy with a Tadpole/Snipe (or Lite Owl) combo.
