thanks, I am too. I'm glad of the opportunity to test it out the way I did, it meant that I was able to adjust my thinking regarding my own personal improvements to the design before going too far. I'm even considering at this point of not worrying about the springpoles themselves and just using the bungee hook straps since they worked so well during the test.
