    Granted, I'm a newbie, but I was playing with my tap the other week to see what all I could do with it.

    4 stakes - one for each corner of the tarp, line tied between the stakes on each side and the tieouts to my WBBB attached to that line. Doors pulled tight together and sticking out toward and tied to the same tree as hammock (or tied to side stakes or each other in the open position)

    6 stakes - corners of SuperFly and pullouts of WBBB

    8 stakes - corners of SuperFly, pullouts of SuperFly, pullouts of WBBB

    10 stakes - corners of SF, pullouts of SF & WBBB, 1 stake for each pair of doors

    12 stakes - everything has its own stake

    6. The tie outs can be tied to trees, rocks, etc

    6 usually used. I carry 8 MSR spikes. Two on the WBBB hammock tie outs, and each corner of the tarp. I usually just tie the doors to the opposing D-ring on the tarp tie-out. I usually tie the tarp tie-outs to a tree, often just the zipper side. So I have two extra stakes and have yet to use them.

    Anyone mind posting their preferred measurements for tie outs on a Superfly? I'm thinking ten footers on the ridgeline, four footers on the doors, and eight footers on the corners... But what about the pull outs?

    I carry 4 groundhogs at a minimum, but generally I try to use NatureStakes (TM) (sticks) whenever possible. As part of the LNT, I try to take no mud with me.

    Here is what Brandon recommends in his setup video: http://www.warbonnetoutdoors.com/setup.php

    Ridgeline: 12' each side (I personally use a continuous ridgeline 31' long)

    Pullouts (each side of tarp): 12' line tied from one tie-out to the other. a 6' line pulls the 12' line down to the ground over a stick or hiking pole.

    Corners: 6' line

    Doors: 4' line

    The total is:
    4 - 12' lines
    6 - 6' lines
    4 - 4' lines

    This system requires 10 stakes for the Superfly. Both doors on one end could share a stake and that would bring the stakes required to 8.

    This is pretty close to what I use.

    Oh wow, I missed that. Thanks! That's a lot of line though, I may try to dial that back a bit... 100' seems excessive!

    The pullouts for the WBBB don't need to be much. I've used sticks a few times. If you're weight conscious but still wanting something you can use the tiny titanium stakes.
