First off I would like to thank SloBrofor his thread on how to make the Whoopie Sling.
I have mastered the operation and am using them on my hammocks. It is an awesome suspension and light-weight and easy to use.
I am NOT using the amsteel blue but another cordage I purchased from the local boat place. (for the Atlanta folks West Marine on 41 near the Cumberland mall)
the cordage is a bit thicker than I like but only cost me $0.16 per foot. The amsteel is going for around $0.34 - $0.45 per foot. Is there a source where I can get it cheaper than that.
The cordage I am using is rated for 1200lb so I know it is strong enough, but I want something a bit thinner and not as stiff as this stuff.
