    I will leave it up tonight so that I can tweak it tomorrow after work.
    Halfastronomical, what a great mod! I bought some surplus 13" nanolite sections off ebay and made 7-section poles with locking ends. The nanolites fit through the existing rings at the ends of the ridgeline with enough extra room to run 2mm lines to the tree. I made 5" long by 7/8" grosgrain loops with a 5/16" grommet in the end and used a girth hitch to attach them to each existing side tieout loop. It's so easy to setup, creates a huge space under the tarp and eliminates the extra tieouts to trip over. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I like that, it solves the questions I had about better controlling the poles without sewing anything to my tarp. Excellent tip !!!
    I never hike alone. The voices in my head are always with me.

    Thanks guys, I am glad that it worked for you. I no longer have my cloudburst, but I am making one with similar dimensions as soon as I get time.

    I ended up going with a similar setup as you, mattbren. I had the same grommet setup with mule tape, and I made another with lash-it dogbones I drillet a hole through the aluminum billet and connected the dogbones to the poles with dutch hooks. Both worked very well but the dogbones were a bit lighter.

    Those setups put less stress on your tarp panel pulls than the original mod that I did.

    When I make the new tarp, I will make a hybrid of the last 2 designs, using the mule tape simply to hold the grommets, then a dogbone connected to that.
