    Found: Lookin' for a Speer, macCat tarp

    OK, so I'm a newbie here, and loving the Hennessy. Wanting to replace the stock fly with something a little bigger.
    I figured I might save a bit in my experimentation if I bought used.
    I have been looking at the Speer and maccat tarps, but would entertain other options if you got them.
    Let me know if you've got something that might fit the bill.
    thanks!

    from my understanding the used market on those items is virtually non-existent. Which is not to say someone with a closet full of gear wouldn't let one go... but I wouldn't hold my breath. The same being said... if you were to buy one new and didn't like it, there would probably be a good chance of recovering most of the cost by selling it. They are in high demand.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Yeah, I still can't believe Take-a-knee sold his deluxe. However, Genuine Draft (GF) bought her's used from Coffee, so there is a market. Timing is going to be everything on a request like this.

    RamblinRev, Cannibal - You're both right about timing and scarcity of the tarps.

    I'm going to break the trend, though. I've got a MacCat Deluxe collecting dust right now. PM on the way, roadrunner.

    If we don't come to terms, I'll list it in the 4sale section.

    I really like my MacCat deluxe! And if you're into DIY work, the center pole mod adds alot of room.

    I recently sold mine! To Willswim. If he had not jumped on it first I was going to sell it to Ashman!

    It is great to finally get rid of that sorry tarp! NOT! It is as good a tarp as you can get, I just have too many, and I may get another larger MacCat any way, or a SWT- I have not tried one of those!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
