    That does look cleaner than having a bead rolling up and down the sling, don't it?
    By George... or in this case By Harrell..... that's BRILLIANT!!

    Try using a pair of toothpicks. I had some luck with those before. I taped the main section down to a table to free up both hands. Use the toothpicks to walk out the line.

    Like some others had mentioned I choose to use 3mm line to tie the Toggle to the Whoopie Loop. The Toggle is always where I need it and it protects the Loop from accidentally closing.

    That's what I ultimately did. For my WBBB's double sided stuff sack, I loop the toggle line around the cordlock. Makes it easier to find the end when they're put away.
