    Tarp

    I measured my ridgeline: 109 inches from biner to biner. 144 inches from Ring support to ring support. I figure a 153 inch tarp would cover it. That's about 4.5 inches on longer than the ring supports on each side. Do you think this is good sizing?

    I would just go with the 144" the blackcat is.

    Even yardage works out easier...and all the measurements for 144" are in lvleph's file already if you're using my directions.

    I would not worry about having the rings covered. I haven't tried it in the rain, but I do not see it being a big deal if they get wet. The 144" cat tarp I made works really well for me.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
