    Yup. Whoopies with small diameter lines are the hammock adaptation of the heavy duty stuff that riggers and arbortists have been using for some time now.

    I wonder how much of that $$$ is liabiltiy insurance. Sling slips because someone used it improperly, kills someone. In court, the attorneys always win. Aside from that, yes, sounds lucrative.

    Arborist whoopies

    As an Arborist I use whoopies, as a hammocker I use whoopies.

    Hurracane Earl just came to my city and boy was I BUSY! Now that we have things cleaned up I can go on a hammock hang that has been planned for tommorrow night.

    Today I used my DIY 3/4" whoopie slings to rig tons of tree sections over my head. Tommorrow I will be useing my DIY 1.8mm whoopie slings to rig myself a few feet off the ground.

    As far as purchasing my rigging tools for work, it just has to work and with a huge safe work load limit. If I have a failure at work I probably won't be around to sue any one! Or I will be in the market to replace an expensive truck, chipper or paying to replace some ones house. I just hope I don't need to replace co-worker!

    If I have a failure with my hammock whoopie I may have a bruised ego or other bruises.
