    Stingerz question

    Does anyone know if the Dutchware Stingerz will work with my 7/64 amsteel continuous ridgeline for my tarp? ( I know 7/64 is overkill...)

    Stingerz question

    The carabiner portion will work with 7/64" amsteel but the "wings" were designed for Zing-it sized lines. I haven't tried 7/64" but I seriously doubt that it would work.

    I'm assuming the holes are the same size and 2.2mm zing-it is too big for the tarp flyz. I believe it will be the same for the stingerz.

    7/64th Amsteel will not fit in either the end hole or the hole in the Tarp Flyz. It will fit in the hook on the end and of course the carabiner portion of the Stingerz. As for the antennae you can open the longer one up the whole way and wrap the amsteel around it but I cannot say if it will hold very well, it may. You would also have to splice a loop in the amsteel (or tie it, yuck) around the carabiner portion as opposed to the hole and then run it back through the hook and wrap around the antennae. I would recommend going with zing-it or lash-it or even dnyaglide to be sure that the stingerz functions as designed.

    Thanks everyone. Not sure what to do now. I have the nite-eyez figure 9 biner on there now and im worried that the teeth on it will tear the fibers on the amsteel. I'll have to think of a plan B. Maybe just two dutch biners, one on each end of tarp, and the tie taut-line hitch at the end of the line, perhaps?

    ...or pick up smaller line. The 1.5 mm Z-Line works great. It's what I use on my ridge line with Dutch's tarp flyz. Good strong cord, stiff, and doesn't tangle.

    I didn't like taut lines in the tiny lines we use. And they don't always work so good.

    I was seeing evidence of the F9 teeth eating up my Amsteel. Plus it meant having those teeth in my stuffsack with all that rippable fabric. So I went with two tiny Stingerz instead to form V's. those things are so cool! That's my latest thing.

    But it would be just as good to get 1 Flyz and one Hook or two Flyz or two Hooks and a prussik loop. There's no wrong way to use Dutchbling. And if you email him he'll make some suggestion.

    Or use the WarbonnetGuy solution; use no hardware. Tie a trucker's hitch on one side and slipped buntline hitch on the other. Looks new when it's new and you look. But try a coupla times and its like comfortable old boots.

    If you want it simple just go by one of Dejoha's poster pictures.

    There's a great YouTube Caveman made.

    Any of these will work.

    It's actually Big Fun to try all of these. HYOH.
