    First Whoopie Slings -- thank you Hammock Forums

    I found these forums after the first time I strung up my new Hennessy Hammock. I just thought, "There has to be a better way. I bet the internet knows." and it did.
    Two nights ago I ripped into my newly delivered box of Amsteel and started on the fixed eye of my whoopie sling ... and failed. Everything I tried to use as a makeshift fid was useless. Yesterday I picked up a super-sized needle at Rite Aid as part of $3 needle set, and it was a whole, new ball game. Turns out it is incredibly easy once you find a workable fid-like device. First set went on my deck/daytrippin hammock.



    Against all odds it seemed to hold my weight without slipping, and I expect some weight savings over my old suspension:




    And considerably less rattling from my bike basket as I head out hammocking.

    Thanks for the great resource.

    Welcome to the Whoopie Club. We have lots of good, clean, fun...despite the name. If you haven't seen them already there are pics and videos of how to attach a Whoopie to a HH.

    I have seen them, but I'll be looking at them again once I get the fixed eye end done in the next set.
