    Wouldn't UCRs be equal if not better? Pretty much the same "grip" system, but using less amsteel? What are the downsides of UCRs?

    Keep in mind since the stingerz are at your tarp, you need double the length for your line. Tree at 5ft, you need 10ft of rope + whatever is required to go around the tree + wrap on the stingerz.
