    I do not have a superfly. In fact I have not camped in my new hammock yet but I've use my Noah's Tarp a bunch of times while tent camping and I've found that running a CRL works really nicely with the caternary cut ridgeline if you just don't tension the heck out of the ridgeline. I bring the tarp up to tension more by using the guylines on the corners going to the stakes. Is that crazy talk?

    That's what I do.

    I understand some of you do different things with different tarps. My questions are for Superfly owners using a continuous ridgeline suspension. I switched to this method disclosed by Dejoha and really like it.

    In my opinion it is superior to prussicks and end only suspension in sheer ease to set up, speed and adjustability. My opinion.

    I am waiting on my Superfly and considering the pole mod by 2QZQ which may require some modification to the ridgeline. I want to use the same method of suspension but I have never used it under a tarp without getting a distorted ridgeline.

    The ridgeline of my tarp actually looks more like a U shape than straight across. This allows for easy raising or lowering of the tarp via loosening or tightening the corners and doing the opposite with the ridgeline - want the tarp higher, loosen the corners and tighten the ridgeline. Easier than having to move the attachment point on the tree if you want to raise or lower the tarp IMHO.




    On the topic of running the RL above or below, I have always ran the RL below with no issues.

    I put mine over the top. I just like the way it looks. I have never tried it under.

    I had one under the tarp until i went back and asked brandon about it.. So i followed his advise and went to end only suspension, its how he designed it and if you notice in his video how tight that thing is I figure he's gotta be in the know...know what i mean..

    If you use a CRL, place it over the tarp as it has a cat cut RL. I used to use a CRL, but now I use two RLs with Dutch Stingerz. I found that is was just as fast, easy to adjust, and I get a much tighter pitched tarp. YMMV.

    I've just switched from a CRL over the top, to single tie-outs at each corner with Dutch flyz. I've only pitched it once like this, but it went up easy and tighter than the CRL method. I'll stick with the two tie out method.

    Do you hook the Flyz right to the metal ring at the end of the tarp? That is what I'm planning to try, just need to get my order into Dutch.

    The stingerz hook right to the tarp ring. The flyz go on the guy line.

    I don't have a Superfly, yet, but it should be on the way shortly.

    Personally, I am going with the two lines. I have already ordered two Dutch Flyz for the SF, and they should be here in a day or so. I didn't want the stingerz, as I think I have more adjustablity with the flyz. If I find trees far apart, I can slide the fly down the line, if needed. With the stingerz, I would have to add an extension line. Not that big of a deal, but that's just the way I roll.
