    NEED HELP Whoopie Sling Lead size

    I can't figure out what lead size I want to order from dutchware(I would call but they are closed right now). Either a 8 inch lead or a 15 inch lead. What is a lead? According to pictures i see of whoopee slings none say what a lead is.

    The difference is for how you attach the Whoopie Sling to the hammock. The lead is from the eye to the bury.

    The more times you wrap the lead/eye around the hammock the longer the lead- 15" will be fine.

    A simple larks head or double larks head to attach to most gathered end hammocks is enough for most of us- 8" is plenty long enough for this.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    I would go with the 8". Also I replaced the rope that came with the hammock with continuous loops. Get Dutch to put some of his whoopie hooks on them and your set!
