How taut is it?
The Springbar seems perfect.
Drapes just like the Springbar.
None of the Cabela's tents I looked at draped properly.
Very important in wind.
And harder to make than it would seem.
You also did not see any Kodiaks at Cabellas.
My 10x10 went through the high winds of both 2008 and 2009 without any problems and my 10x14 in 2009 on the Playa and the 40 to 60mph flat line winds we had at the regional that got flooded out last year using the 12" metal stakes that Kodiak supplies with the tents.
A good heavy rainstorm will do wonders in washing off the playa dust too.
