    How much does your whoopie sling weigh?

    Sorry if I'm repeating. I've searched and haven't found this . . .

    How long is one of your whoopie slings, what is it made from and how much does it weigh in grams or ounces (not counting biners, toggles, straps.) Just the sling.

    My 6' model Amsteel's are the same size and weight as previously described... 0.7oz in 7/64" and 1.1oz in 1/8". I almost didn't believe the difference in "heft" between the two when I saw the 1/8" version. That extra 1/64" makes a big difference in both thickness and weight. Either holds me up fine.

    I bet that's because they change over from just 8 strands in 7/64th to the full 12 strands in 1/8".
