    Continuous Tarp Ridgeline on Superfly

    Ok, this question is for Superfly owners only! I am trying to get the rig dialed in before it arrives so I can take to the field immediately.

    CRL, Over or Under or I don't use a CL. If you have something to contribute to the research please post a comment.

    Thanks for the info!

    The only time my Superfly "leaked" was when the CRL was underneath and the torrential rain ran along it and dripped inside. Otherwise the ridge line of the SF has not failed as issued by Warbonnet

    Over the ridgeline. The ridgeline has a cat cut to it so it won't pitch correctly with a CRL underneath...

    This is one of my concerns, adding more hardware or drip solutions...

    I have noticed this on other cat tarps also...

    Have you experienced heavy rains? If so, do you provide drip rings or knots?

    I used to use an above the tarp CRL but now I just tie the ends to the trees. I have prusiks on each and so adjustment is the same as it was when I used a CRL.
    Some people like a below the tarp CRL for a little added strength and support for the tarp but the Superfly has a gross grain on the seam which sort of acts as a CRL.

    Yes I have been out in heavy rains it may be due to me having my tarp connected with a prusiks knot on both ends why it doesn’t leak and why I don’t have trouble with the cat cut.

    I like a ridgeline under my tarp to hang things on sometimes. I don't have my Superfly yet, but when I do I think I will just tie the ends to the trees and have another loose line under the ridge that doesn't interfere with the cat cut.

    I dont have a ridgeline or a tarp I will be getting one soon but usually it is a good idea to have it over so you don't have driping and the cat cut kind of makes it hard have it under.
    Bacon and Camping makes me happy.
