    Tarp Ridgelines

    Hey y'all. Havent set up my hammock with a tarp, and will be getting a Wilderness Logics Tadpole for Christmas. Whats the best way to set it up above my hammock, completely separate from my hammock suspension. Also will be using a Fronkey style bugnet. 550 paracord is my option right now, but looking at lash it.

    I love Lash-It, but many prefer to use Zing-It because it's easier to see. Dutch is running a REALLY good deal on both at the moment, but sale ends very soon. He ships very fast as well.

    Paracord works for sure.. It does soak up the water though and gets heavy..
    I did take advantage of the Dutch sale.. Added another 100ft. to my arsenal.. zing it..
    Also favor the speer no tangle..
    We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..

    My vote is for lash-it or zing-it with two Dutch stingerz! Love that system! You can even order the stingerz with zing-it already spliced on

    When you cut this stuff can you just burn the ends like you would 550? And do they hold a prussick knot?

    I have not burned the ends yet, but it does hold a prussik. I used some of the extra that I had to make my prussiks and I thought they wouldn't hold, but they did.
