I currently use two Dutchware StingerZ with 12' lines spliced onto them as my tarp (HG DCF with doors) ridge lines.

Two concerns with this approach that I would love some advice one:

1. This approach reduces the total potential span as the StingerZ approach requires double the line length to go tarp to tree and back to tarp, this seems "wasteful", is there a better approach, with or without the StingerZ, or should I just add longer lines?

2. Using two lines, one at each end, I end up with very little gear hanging space under the tarp to dry clothes etc., just the gap between hammock ends and tarp ends. Is the only answer a continuous ridge line?

If you have some advice I would appreciate it.
