I've been reading through some of the very long sticky threads about whoopie slings. I seem to see about an even amount of people using the Amsteel 1/8" vs the 7/64ths. Am I correct that the issue is more the number of strands (12 vs 8 if I understood correctly) than in the additional 1/64"?

Since I am getting ready to place an order for some to convert my hammocks to a whoopie system, which of these two sizes do people seem most happy with?

Is Amsteel Blue still the generally preferred choice among those in the know for making whoopie slings?
