Am I missing something? Or did I do something wrong?
I read the threads on whoopie slings, watched the videos, and then made one out of 7/64 amsteel using galvanized wire as a snare - real easy.
Except now I'm not that impressed. Being dumb, I assumed I'd have an adjustable suspension line with infinite adjustment (or at least infinite for as long as the rope minus the length of the tail and loop.)
Instead I ended up with a line that adjust only as long as the tail. To get the infinite adjustment like a pair of ring buckles and a strap, I'd need to make the tail out of almost all of the rope.
With my ring buckles and 12-foot straps I can hang my hammock from a variety of different sized trees spaced between 15 and 25 feet apart. To have that same versatility with a whoopie sling it looks like I'd need 12-foot or longer tails.
Not a big deal, they can be easily made that way, but I just wanted to be certain I wasn't doing something wrong in making them.
