I'm planning to make some whoopie slings for an October hang, and have a few questions.
1. What size (diameter?) amsteel do I need? I have seen 1/8", 1/4", etc.
2. Do you have to tie a knot at the hammock end of the whoopie to hold it in place, and keep it from slipping?
In every video I see, this isn't mentioned, and I never see any way of securing it.
Would I be correct in assuming that the part where the amsteel goes through itself is free-moving when not under a load, but tightens down, and creates enough friction to stay in place when under load?
p.s.- WOW that was hard to try to put into words, hopefully you guys will understand my gibberish!
