    How Do You Hang Your Super Fly

    Do you use a double or single line to hang your Super Fly? I'm using a single from whoopieslings.com. What are the Pros and Cons of double vs. single.

    I'm using a double line on mine. Since I'm new to this, I'm sorry I don't have any Pros or Cons info for ya. I do know that I was able to deploy mine really fast this weekend and set-up went smooth as silk. I have some Mountaingoat skins on mine, so the lines tuck nicely into the little pockets that are on the end of the skins.

    I use a single most times. Makes me feel there's added strength and i can easily center. that said, this would be my most used double line tarp due to the way the center seam is sewn in and the natural arc of it.

    How Do You Hang Your Super Fly

    I like to run a single below the tarp but with the superfly it seems to work better when I go over the tarp. I like a single for the ability to center the tarp quicker. When I first got my superfly I used a double line setup, it worked great and after a few times setting it up I got pretty good at getting it centered the first time. I just found that I fiddled with the double line setup more than my single. Really the only reason I switched in the first place was that I watched Hanson's video and thought I would give it a try. One last positive is that I can grab that single and throw up just about any tarp, nothing to switch out.

    I used mine with double lines for a while, but switched this summer to the doubled single-line system that allows for easy centering adjustment. I don't have a lot of excess tarp ridge length to play with when hanging it over my 11" XLC and the adjustable single line set-up makes it very easy to fine tune the centering.

    That said, I have a feeling I'll eventually go back to the simpler, lighter, two-line set-up.

    Take it easy,

    I use a double line with a dutch hook and flyz for easy centering. I feel with the cat cut ridgeline that the single line cant get it tight enough so thats why i switched to this method and it has worked great.

    Currently using the 2 line system with Stingerz. I find with the size of the SF, it is usually 'close enough' on the first try. I can fiddle with it a bit if I need to get it perfect. I like the simplicity of this system.
    On my smaller Edge tarp, I like a single line, because it usually takes some centering to get everything covered. I currently have the DeJoha sliding righere but am thinking of going back to dutch hook and flyz single line that uses prussics to attach the tarp and allow for centering.

    I started my SF off with a single and did not like it. Switched to two lines and that works for me, of course they are decked out with Dutch bling.

    I use two 15' lines attached with stingers. On each end of the tarp, I also have 3' dogbones I can move the stingers to if I need extra length on either or both ends. I find that adjusting the tarp to either end is easily done by letting one side out a few inches, and tightening the other side..
