I just got my Amsteel and made my whoopie slings, with a simple twist. I put gutted paracord over the Amsteel in the eye splice for abrasion resistance. It's just the right size. I melted the ends after I gutted it to keep them from fraying and just threaded it on with a size 5 crochet needle that I threaded the end of with a screw. I'll put pics up soon.
