Fav. guyline lengths for rectangular tarp?

Postby seigik » Thu Aug 21, 2014 7:12 pm

Hi all,

I am a total tarp newbie, and I was hoping to pick the brains of the experienced veterans on this board!

I just got my hands on a used cuben fiber tarp (it was a prototype that HMG released before they started selling their models) that's 6x10 in length (unconventional, I know). Unfortunately, it didn't come with guylines, so I'm looking to attach my own. I bought 50 feet of Lawson Glowire; all that's left is for me to cut it up the way I want.

Can y'all please give me some guyline length and placement recommendations? I imagine I'll usually set up an A frame, but want to leave other options open.

Thank you so much!
