    Re: Length of guy lines?

    35' ridgeline and 7' four corners... Doors are shock cord and like 3'-4' I think...

    Make a ridgeline and hang your tarp. If you intend to ever do a porch mode get your hiking poles. Take a piece of guyline and tie it to the tarp now pull it out to the lenght that works for your tarp. I add an extra foot in length for slopes on the ground. now if using porch mode do the same with your poles. All tarps are different so this method is better than pre making them. Hope this helps

    I carry some 2' lash-it dogbones to extend my guy lines for porch mode. Otherwise, they are adjustable from ~2-4' with taut line hitches.

    6' on all corners. I like the idea of shock cord tied to side pull outs. I'll have to give it a try.

    Length of guy lines?

    I have superfly. I put 8ft on one side with two pullout so I can use porch mode and the other six pullouts have 4ft.
