    whoopie sling/ridgeline question (ENO)

    i've got a single nest eno and like many on here, i'm fed up with the slap straps.

    i'm going to make my own woopie slings for the suspension but i would also like to add a SRL using amsteel.

    my question is, can i attach the SRL to the Whoopie sling where it comes out of the channel on the hammock with a knot or do i have to do the decending ring method that i have seen other do?

    i've searched but couldn't find a definate answer

    A knot will work just fine.

    Or, you can splice a fixed eye loop on either end of the SRL and attach via a larks' head.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    ok, thanks. i'm good with doing a knot i just wanted to make sure that there isn't any serious draw backs to tying off directly to the whoopie sling.

    thanks for your help

    If you are going to make whoopie slings you might as well make fixed loops in the SRL and as angrysparrow said larks head them around the whoopies. Knots will hold fine but fixed eye loops are stronger and and look neater.

    Knots work but as Angrysparrow and Bubba said, spicing some fixed eyes in the ends sure makes her look pretty

    sorry for the confusion, i was going to basicly duplicate the ones that your selling smokebait, if not outright buy some from you. if that's how your adjustable RL works then that's what i want to do, it seems like you got a good method going so i figured i would go with it too.
