    Best whoopie sling video

    What is the best whoopie sling video that you have seen?

    I learned how to make them from several videos and different tutorials. I haven't found a single comprehensive video or tutorial.

    There are MANY bad videos on you tube. I also want one that shows a spliced closed loop. I don''t understand why people want to tie a knot on that end when a properly done locked brummel with tail buried is so much cleaner and it's not that hard.

    I've got a friend a few hours away asking me for help. I might have to put together a video for him or do a video chat or something.

    Edit: why are people still using a darning needle and pushing the constrictor portion? This may work with 1/8" amsteel but is somewhere between difficult and impossible on 7/64". A loop of wire is the way to go. I'm doing dynaglide (much harder to splice) and a guitar string makes it's easy.

    Agreed on using doubled over wire...practice on 1.75 Zing-It or Lash-It...everything else is easy as pie!!!
