    Are those hook points in such a position that they could be used to tie back the doors under the fly?

I've tried looking around and don't see anything on their website or shug's videos (#2 source for sure!), and I am too new to know exactly what they might be for. Just hanging a headlamp?

    Warbonnet describes them this way "2 rings on the underside of the ridgeseam to attach your Ridgerunner bugnet cords to." The quote is found on the Custom Tarps, Superfly page under Panel Pulls. Just another way Brandon out thinks us all...

    The bugnet! Yes! Thanks HarveyM for the reference and final answer, and to others who had good ideas which I was also considering but still left a little baffled.
    When the bugs are back, that will be super helpful because I can't stand the little biters. (worried about my single layer in summer... )

    Back to the beginning of this thread, I have been able to rig up multiple setups for side panel pull-outs thanks to everyone. All have worked well following advice.

    I'm really loving hammocks over tents & ground sleeping - thanks to all this good info, I have seen the light!

    Even on cool summer evenings you may find the need for an UQ. OR, on a hot night, an UQP simply for bug protection. (I'm assuming a hammock with an integrated net. Much less of an issue with a Fronkey.)

    I use a bridge and you really do need that extra width inside, always felt that the pullouts are functional, but seem like a place waiting to leak.

    The tarp I selected was posted a few years ago by a member called KitsapCowboy, the name he gave was the Batwing and the pics and writeup can be found here https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...ll-Season-Tarp

    He uses tent poles that extend from the stake tie out on one side to the other .... it would be a simple mod for any commercial tarp, just adding a small pole pocket at each corner and presto.

    Just something else for you to consider.

    i.e. double internal pole mod. Chances are that the pole lengths needed to do this to a SF are here somewhere...

    for the Batwing, right? I think he needs length for a SF.

    The way to measure is covered, basically you just measure corner to corner and add about 2' to give the inward slope.

    So if you buy a 12' wide tarp, just measure across one end corner to corner to confirm it is, then add 2' and that is the pole length required ... so for 12' that is 14'. I am using "about" because it isn't critical to be exact (within reason), the added length just gives you the setback at the top, 2' is a good medium.
