I'll agree that we disagree I've set the tent up many times in significant wind with minimal fuss. Definitely not more than any of my other tents. Just last week at Jabu Lake I got slammed with gusts that you could lean into with most of your weight. I'm not sure the exact wind speeds, but I'd say easily over 30 mph. I normally stake out one end before the pole goes in and yes, football size+ rocks are added over the stakes, or deadman'd if the ground doesn't comply, for added anchor support. I also utilize the two guyline attachment points mid-way up the pole sleeve in winds, which really help minimize the pole from flexing.
