A) I dont find that in a peak 3.1, I can sit up ok.andrew_s wrote: ↑12 Jun 2021, 4:45pm The problems with the longitudinal (head to toe) single arch are...
a) it's narrow left to right, and there's not the width for your head in the high part. This can be fixed with a short spreader pole, as on the Pheonix Phreeranger
b) the pole is low tension, and easily deformed by the wind. This can lead to being thwacked on the head by the pole as it blows flat.
c) the left and right panels are large and now well supported, so crossways wind can also be a problem.
(I also had a T.N. Solar, at one stage)
b) but its no more low tension than a spacepacker's?
c) ditto, how does this differ from a spacepacker other than the steepness of the slope.
Aren't b and c dealt with by guys on a spacepacker?
