    Hennesey Hexfly setup?

    I just bought 3 Hennesey Hexfly tarps: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

    I am a total noob and I am not sure if it comes with the lines and cords? What will I need to set it up?
    We are planning our very first hammock camping trip in 2 weeks and I want to make sure I have everything we need. Is there a good resource somewhere about how to set them up different ways?

    Thank you!

    I love my Hennesey Hex. It comes with cords and is super easy to set up. Two on ends, fours on sides. Has little pockets to wrap the cords up in when putting away. Love! Love!

    My HH Hex did not come with a ridgeline so you will need to plan for that. Obviously, you will also need stakes for the 4 side tie-downs.

    I also love my HH Hex... very versatile - and easy to setup with its own RL and stored in snakeskins.

    Have Fun.

    Don't use a ridgeline with mine. I simply pull it tight and tie to the trees. Works great. I, also, love putting it in porch mode with my hiking poles or some sticks.

    No ridgeline for me either. Bring a hank of paracord if you've got it and try it both ways and see what you like best. It works fine with or without.

    Regardless of what you lines you need to add, you can get some BRAIDED mason line from Home Depot bot 7.00 for a spool of 100'. Make sure it's braided though (helps with the tangling and you can make a bury if you're into that) Took me 15 mins to cut an attatch all the lines for my superfly, literally 30 minutes before I left the house to use it. Very easy.

    I use my HH hex a lot (first model). Didn't come with any lines, but I do my own thing with that anyway. Sometimes with a ridgeline, sometimes without. SOmetimes with Prussics.

    I like the thing a lot - has been through two intense rainstorms, and passed with flying colors. Gets condensation though - was rining on me from underneath at the winter NEHHA!

    Still love it!

    I love mine. I run a continuous ridge line under mine and I find that helps it keep a nice crease on the top and I feel it supports it well.

    Thanks everyone! I am going to get a ridgeline because I will need to attach the skeeter beeter netting to something. Do I want an adjustable one? If so do I need to order anything else to make that work right...buckles or something? I am looking at the ones from whoopieslings.com.
