I've looked through as many previous threads as I could find about Whoopie Slings, and I'm wondering about the bury length.
I recently got some 1/8" Amsteel Blue and made a set of slings(very simple by the way). I made my bury about 9" long, which makes them about 8-1/2" long after the expansion from feeding the line through the inside. They work great, but I can't help wondering if anyone has tried a shorter bury.
Some Samson literature called for a bury of two fid lengths. A fid for 1/8" line is only 2-5/8" long. That would make a bury of only 5-1/4". Has anyone tried this short of a bury?
The only thing to be gained is the minimum distance to hang from, but you could probably save almost a foot, which could come in handy.
