    I saw some other posts recommending 1/8" Amsteel. Guess that's overkill?

    Only on your wallet.

    But yes... the rating of the 7/64 is plenty. Some folks cant get passed the mental block of using line that small... But I tell them there is only a difference of 1/64 of an inch.

    Can you find 1/64 on a tape or ruler?

    And even if I were to be uber conservative and say the 7/64 in a whoopie sling will only support 1000#'s.... Do you ever plan on having 1000#'s in your hammock?
