Few things about me...most of my hiking is in the SE US, I don't use hiking poles, I am 6', 255lbs, and I sleep on a Exped SynMat UL 7 20" x 72" (very happy with that product btw). Right now I use a Eureka Spitfire 1 (http://store.eurekatent.com/spitfire-1-tent) and I am happy with it, a lot like the moment in a lot of ways but it is kinda tight on space for the weight (53oz) and requires 6-8 stakes. The main positive is it was $80 bucks on Amazon so good way to get started for cheap.
I have narrowed it down to these two choices. I know they are pretty different but they are the top choice (IMO) in their respective fields, I just have to decide which field/direction I want to go with.
Since I don't use hiking poles and I wanted simple setup that's what led me to the TT Moment. I think that is hands down the best option for me as far as price, simplicity/speed of setup (1 pole, 2 stakes) and I like that it can be free standing if needed (canoe trips on beaches). I am completely sold on the TT Moment except two of the factors...silnylon (misting, water absorption potential issues), and condensation issues due to the more enclosed design. I know all of that can be mitigated but I don't like the idea of having a chance of getting wet inside the tent so I am potentially willing to spend more and give up simplicity of setup to get a better deal.
So that got me thinking about spending more, going with cuben. So out of all the cuben options I like the Hexamid Solo-Plus. I eliminated several others like the GG stuff, SMD, and Lightheart's because you need two trekking poles and 6-10 stakes. When I add in all that extra weight I am not saving much weight or money, getting a lot of fiddle factor, and not gaining much room/space. So if I am going to have fiddle factor I wanted something really light and with a lot of space. That lead me to the Zpacks Hexamid Solo-Plus.
Yes I would be getting a lot of fiddle factor with 10 stakes, but in exchange I get great ventilation (hopefully little/no condensation), TONS of space, very light weight, and no chance of misting.
So it becomes, do I want to do cheaper, less fiddle factor, potential for misting and greater potential for condensation TT Moment....or expensive, more fiddle factor, more room, less weight, no misting, less chance for condensation Zpacks Hexamid Solo Plus?
