    Lash-it guy lines for tarp

    I just bought some lash-it for using to hang my tarp. I'm planning on using separate lines on each end. How long should I cut my pieces of lash-it for use with Dutch Stingerz?

    BTW - I'm using 7' long straps and whoopie slings for my hammock suspension.

    I also tie off the ends of my tarp to the trees and made mine lines 12 feet. Always been plenty long enough.

    I believe mine were 10-12'.

    Why are you wanting to do separate lines? I only ask because that's how I started but a CRL is so much easier to re-position the tarp. I don't think I could ever go back to the two-line method.

    The two line method done with prussiks is just as easy to adjust as the CRL.

    I find using two lines the same as when I used a CRL. Either way you have to go to either side to slide the prusiks so I figured I didn't need the line going over the tarp. Works for me anyways.

    I can say I never thought of using prussiks. My lines were attached to the tarp and I'd go around the tree to a figure 9. I can see how using prussiks would make it little different than what I was doing with the CRL.

    That's the beauty of hammocks. 1000 ways to skin a dead cat.
