Wow, this kit is so easy to use! The hardware holds great. My only dissatisfaction is the the pics show a plastic holder that will keep the lines together when not in use, that was not included.
I had tried the split ridgeline and it was great, but the continuous ridgeline is easier to setup and adjust. I think it might be a touch heavier than the split ridgeline but the ease of use makes up for it.
Haven't had this out in the field yet, but did test it in the local park. The ridge-line sets up quickly and easily. It was a snap to get proper tension, and just as easy to break it down.
The Nama Claws are so fast and easy to use. Centering the tarp is really simple.
Only con, the small split ring for connecting to the tarps D rings is somewhat weak. After applying tension to the tarp, the rings started to open up and deform. There really wasn't enough pressure to make this happen.
My quick fix was to add a small loop of narrow gauge cordage. I larks's headed the loop to the D rings and was off and running. The cordage is plenty strong enough, and probably lighter also.
Overall, I'm glad I bought this kit. Mt setup will be quicker and less temperamental.
