    I want new folks opinions please

    I want to know from people who have recently started using hammocks or just discovered them to tell me what your thoughts on the whoopie sling suspensions difficulty of use.

    The reason being I am making my best friends brother a hammock he asked a few years ago and I turned him down but I have the DIY bug again and reconsidered.

    I have been around for quite some time and knows the ways of amsteel for longer than that so the use of a whoopie sling makes perfect sense to me so I am extremely biased. The hammock I made for his brother is a strap setup. I wanted to cut down on the weight for him because he is a boy scout and may take it backpacking with him potentially.

    My plan is thus. he is a large lad min 200lbs so a 1.9 11.5' bed with whoopie slings and the Dutchware whoopie hooks, I am going to put instructions for the hooks and an SPE and what not in with it but I got to thinking. I wont be there to help him set it up so a video is a must but I was just looking for opinions.
