    Opie, thanks a million for posting the tutorial and pics on this. It was a lot simpler than I thought it was after looking at it and playing around with it here. I just made 2 sets of Whoopie Slings with fixed eye brummels on the end to atach to the hammock. Super easy project once you get started on it and get going. Thanks for sharing!

    If there is interest.

    I made an excel file tor Whoopie newbs like myself who were unaware of what an Fid was until recently. The file shows a picture of the parts of a whoopie sling and uses the samson - amsteel rope instructions to calculate all the safe bury sizes for whatever diameter of cord you select. Probably not that useful as most everyone uses 7/64 but PM me if you want it!

    Sweet post. Now I know how to do it! I'm ordering my Amsteel this weekend and converting my HH to WS. Thanks!

    Awesome pics, great step by step tutorial.

    I like to put the end of my splicing tool in a vice. Then you can work the rope onto it using both hands. I think my spicing tool is slightly heavier wire (from a clothes hanger) which despite the bigger size I think makes it easier for the bury because it's stiffer to work the rope over.

    jeep, the leader wire is pretty stiff. I never had it kink or otherwise become disconfigured during use. I could easily go through 1200-1600 foot of rope on 1 tool.

    Double end loop

    I made two closed loop Locked Brummel and I think it will work great from the whipped end of the hammock to the Dutch biner to whoopie sling
