    VIDEO: Latest gear to hit the mail box

    Hi Guys,

    Just shot a vid of some new gear that I had a chance to look at today.



    From AHE - Whoopie slings, Triangle thingies, Zipper pulls.... All going onto the Warbonet Blackbird.

    For most of you this will be old news but I had fun sharing it and some of us guys that are just new to it may find it interesting.

    Cheers

    I put AHE whoopies onto my bird. I got two different colors so it makes it easy to distinguish the head end. Very easy upgrade. I didn't really like the stock buckle suspension warbonnet sent. Those triangles are a pita to pull apart under tension.

    Thanks for the video, I have been planning on putting whoopie slings on my WBBB, and really considering the triangle thingys as well, thanks for sharing.

    Like aboyd I'm also considering the triangle thingies. Will be interested to read your opinion on them.

    Thanks for the video, and I liked the trolley shots.

    Great video, nicely done. If you like you can take another rap around the hammock with the sling to shorten up the space between the bury and the Hammock. Glad it all made it down to you. Looks nice and warm...something I am really missing right now...The sun might come out today though.

    Cable-cam!!!!! Fun stuff. Always nice to see some Australia. Love your back lounge area.
    I have never used the triangles so it was good to see them. Keep us updated.

    Excellent video thanks.
    Really like the demo on swapping out the stock straps with whoopies.

    Itís a good idea; I have decided to go with a colored cord lock on one end of the bag.

    Thanks for having such good service.... Very straight forward. I place the order and received the goods. Perfect.

    Getting there with the Cable-cam, thank you. I may need to look at another line to use as the 550 is giving some noise. Outdoors can't always be in the woods, so we try to make suburbia as nice as possible.

    No worries, while waiting for the goodies to get here I was keen to see how it was done. As always, I was thinking there would be more to it.. Real easy.
