I’m about to buy my first tarp and have been trying to decide between flat or cat. I really like the variable pitch options of a flat tarp but the apparent ease of setup and taughtness of the catenary tarps. My question is can the catenary tarps be effectively set up in any other pitch besides the usual A-frame?(Flying Diamond, Lean To, As tube tent,etc,etc). There is a great article by David Macpherson at equipped.com that demonstrates many of the variations in which a flat tarp can be pitched. And without intending to be redundant my question again is can a cat tarp also be pitched in these variations?
