Hey guys, Ive been hanging for quite a while, but when it comes to whoopie slings, Im a newbie! I just made my first whoopie sling, and have a question: I followed the directions on the amsteel website--------for my adjustable loop, the buried part is supposed to be around 12 inches-----------I measured carefully, buried the loop----and it comes out to about 10 inches---------is this normal? also, on the locked brummal, does burying the end give it strength, or does it just get the tail out of the way? Im used to speer straps---amsteel is kind of scary for me---Im a pretty big guy, and it seems so thin! -------I like the idea, and am willing to give it a try, buy dont want to end up on the ground!
