    Paul at arrowhead equipment sells them. Jacks r better does too, and they also sell a package deal with whoopies, straps, dutchware, the whole nine yards.

    I found it was more fun to buy my own amsteel and make them, but DIY isn't for everybody.

    Tree to Trail Gear, Hammock Gear, NK Outdoors and Smart Outdoors all sell whoopies as well and other good stuff too.

    You might also keep an eye in the PIF thread...I've picked up two sets on that thread, and traded out some gear to folks who seemed pretty happy with what they got.

    @Codya95, FWIW, be aware that if you do this (as I did), the stock Hennessy fly will no longer work as advertised- the prusiks will not hold on the amsteel whoopies. I now hang the fly from its own suspension.
    Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

    I use the stock prusiks on my Whoopie Sling ropes with no problems.

    I just bought two pair from NK Outdoor Gear and they are much better than what I made for myself. That isn't easy on my pride, but it had to be said. I'll buy from him again before building my own. My time is better spent on things I do well...

    Interesting- I found the amsteel to be too slippery to hold the prusiks. I'll have to give it another try and see... It would allow the distance between the hammock and fly to remain steady rather than sinking down when you get in.
