Because the first post of this particular thread was so detailed, I've gone ahead and made it a sticky for the suspension forum.
*Note - I changed the title, also, because this method isn't Blackbird specific*
I to have been following the whoopie sling / UCR threads with much interest. I made my "splicing needle" today. It was constructed from an 18" zip tie. I cut the locking end of the zip tie and then folded the end over to form a eyelet loop and used super glue secure everything. Tonight I will dig through my gear, find my Amsteel blue, and start making my first set of Whoopie Slings.
Thanks to all who have been experimenting with this method and special thank to SloBro for posting these simple instructions.
