    Whipping?

    What can be used for whipping from the hardware store?

    Can I use rope or string?

    I thought that is what the rope was called around the end of a gathered end hammock. Perhaps I have my lingo incorrect.

    You can use most anything that will hold a knot. I tend to use paracord sheathing cause a have a lot of spare paracord. Be sure to get something made of polyester, nylon, etc so it doesn't rot.

    Thank you for the correction.

    I just have the itch to get something going, as I have nothing right now and would like to get something together A.S.A.P

    I'm correcting the thread title, to avoid further confusion.
