    Amsteel/Dynaglide Whoopie Slings weight difference

    I just replaced my Amsteel 6' Whoopie Slings with 6' Dynaglide Whoopie Slings. My HH Adventure Racer with Amsteel weighed 1lb 1.4 oz. With the Dynaglide it weighs 14 oz.

    Cool! I'm right at 200 # which I thought was the weight limit. I really thought the DG was plenty strong but didn't want to push it. Will add these to my wish list

    I switched mine too but I'm thinking about going back to Amsteel because it seemed to slide so much better. I remember reading in someones post that the green DG slides better than the orange. I have orange. Does anyone know if this is true?

    Would the "stickiness" become less of an issue with use? Amsteel Blue when new if my memory is correct seem to be "sticker" to the feel when new. The WS I made were blue color. Do remember a bit of blue color on the hands/fingers when the WS were new.
