New 102"

I got this maybe a week ago. As far as reception, fantastic. It honestly could not be any better. And yes i know, it doesnt need a spring, but i dont like how it looks tied down without the spring on. Oh and the tie down is a little ghetto, but i guess whatever works, and i put the third top hook on because with just two it would bounce, get slack and unhook itself. so the top one keeps tension.
