    I have an ENO ProFly and really like it, but the first thing I did was remove those awful stiff guy lines and replace them with Lash-it. Then the line locs didn’t work because the Lash-it was too thin…so I just ran it though the grosgrain loops. yay. It works now. Glad to know I wasn’t the only one who didn’t like the guy lines that come with the tarp.

      Yes, I’m not a huge fan of the stiff guy lines. What size Lash-it did you use? The 2mm should work on those line locs, but the 1.75mm might be too thin.

    Hi Derek, couple questions:

    1) In the photo featuring the hammock, what kind of tie-off did you use at the trees to achieve that V-shaped gap allowing the hammock’s Atlas suspension straps to feed through it?

    2) Once you’ve cinched the guy lines using the LineLoc, do you recommend a tie-off to keep it in place, like a double half-hitch?

    • Derek says:

      I believe i used the line loc provided by ENO. Each line is terminated by a tied loop that you hook over a stake.

      • Bob says:

        Thanks, yeah that part seems pretty straightforward. Was more interested in the end of the cord near the LineLoc, not the stake (for question #2). Wasn’t sure if the LineLoc alone was strong enough in a gust, or if you added a hitch to the slack cord near the LineLoc.

        For question #1, it’s about your ridgeline tie-offs. The LineLoc is great there too, but I was curious if you attached to the tree with a large bowline loop or some sort of biner that allowed your hammock’s suspension to jut through the tarp’s ridgeline tie-offs.

        Hope that clarifies my questions a bit.

    I have the profly xl. And my biggest issue that I have, is getting it back into the stuff sack…I can eventually get it but after some time and having to take it to the ground.(but I’m not crazy about that, the less I have to take it to the ground the better. To many stick and stones/chances of ripping). Any tips or tricks to re-packing it?(I tried snake skins, but doesn’t seem to pack as nice as the stuff sack)

    • Derek says:

      If I remember correctly that fabric is a little thick and so it doesn’t stuff well. For tarps like this, I fold and then roll. But the trick to keeping it off the ground is to keep one end attached to your anchor point. This is like having a second person helping to hold the tarp up.

      The first thing I do is untie all the guy points and wrap them up, leaving the ridgeline ends tied up. Finally, I untie one ridgeline end leaving the last end up. While holding the loose end, I reach out across the ridgeline and grab the middle and fold over matching the ridgeline ends together. At this point I fold the tarp a few more times, again across the ridgeline. I can then fold and half the fabric until I get it down to the width where I can roll it down to slide it into the stuff sack.
