There is more of a minimum distance with whoopies, which should be taken into account.
You might want to look into Single Ring Suspension. It makes things adjustable, has a shorter minimum distance and would let you use rings. I've used it with success and like it as an approach in my bag of tricks. You'd still have to make locked brummels (loops) at one end, but do a quick search here and you'll see it's easier than it sounds to do...
