Why isn't the utility constrictor more popular than the whoopie sling? I assume it would save weight, right? I would also think that it is nicer to pack if you have less rope?
Yes, I'm aware that I could theoretically use whoopies the other way round. But I have your all-in-one system. I also like the ring that prevents the water running down the line - which would need to go on the non-hammock side then, too.
Utility constrictor is a little more finicky. With the WS, its a set it and forget it type deal. with the UC, you have to make sure you are backing up the tail end of the constrictor. Not a big deal, but some dont like to have to worry about it.
