    New Whoopie Slings: Tested them while hiking the Haw River

    Took my kids out to the Haw River today and tested out my new whoopie slings on an ENO hammock. I left the toggles at home so I had to use sticks. I really like the fine tuning capabilities. It seems strange that they'd hold up my weight but they did well.

    Love my whoopie suspension and still have one on my kids hammocks, but I switched to a becket hitch suspension with webbing attached tree straps and it is awesome. Easy of use. I toyed the idea for about 3 months and thought I must be crazy, whoopies Are super easy and light weight.
    Now I am not a gram weenie but without the metal in suspension it is a little lighter and less complicated to change my width...
    I will say I had to go to an adjustable Ridgeline, due to the fact that I had trouble with hang angle after switching.
    Hammock is 11 feet long. 9 feet wide. Tree straps are 12 ft with a 6 foot runner on each end.
