Not to hijack my own thread but how well would amsteel work with the prusik setup ? I am sure I can make a whoopie sling no problem but I have read that they slip and like I said my prusik didn't slide down at all.
Maybe used 1\8 in main line and smaller 7\64 prusik loop so it has more "bite" on the main line?
Never seen one slip... I have seen tree straps stretch... But never seen a whoopie budge... I'm told it MAY if you forget to tighten up the bury after adjusting it... But I slept 7-8 nights before anyone told me to do that and I never had a problem...
