Putting up a Trailstar requires a bit of practice. As it was a pleasant afternoon yesterday, I decided to have a play in the garden. Our garden is not ideal as it slopes and there’s no totally flat area.
A foam tube (from a Sawyer mini filter) makes the front pole guy more secure and prevents the cord from cutting into the foam handle of the trekking pole.
The rear pegging point has a different colour cord. I’ve also added a loop of orange cord on the pegging points of the OookStar inner shock cord tie out to help identification.
I’ve added a loop of cord to the apex grosgrain loop to aid packing in high winds.
