Depends on how you want to be able to pitch it.
It can be pitched with just one long guyline, and five pegs.
high corner pitch with one long line, and a few short ones.
A frame needs longer lines. With the spectralite version I use sticks to achieve a wider, flatter pitch. I think the other versions provide a bit more coverage. I don't know how long they are, maybe 7-8 foot for the long ones, and 3-5 feet for the shorter ones. 5 feet seems really long, I haven't measured. I set my tarp up with some cheap kite string to figure out what I like, and then cut the real lines to match.
