    Have you done whoopie slings? If so just make a long whoopie sling. It should be adustable from about 90-93 inches to 100-105 inches. Somewhere in there is the length that is right for you.

    I have just installed whoopie slings on my eno today, but I didn't not make them.
    If I find directions on how to make that....how will I attach it to my eno for a ridgeline.

    Larks head the fixed loop onto the suspension just above the gather. The loop formed by the whoopee goes around the suspension on the other end. I use a small biner to attach mine, which keeps the whoopee loop where I put it. Otherwise, it can wander when packed, and cause mischief.

    if you ran the fixed ends through your channels and larksheaded them on then just back the adjustable end of your suspension out of the fixed end and slip the adjustable end of your suspension through the fixed end of your ridgline, then reattatch your suspension. Do the same thing with the adustable end of your ridgeline

    If you aren't comfortable with splicing I'd be more than happy to splice the whoopie for ya and put it on your hammock for ya if like.

    It depends on how tightly you hang...a really tight rl will blow a Nite Ize. The small wire gate biners sold in the HF store are a better choice.

    HamMike, I'll play aroung with making the whoopie and see where I am at after that. If you are close we should get a group together for a hang regardless.
