    looking for rope/cord to make mini whoopie slings

    I am looking for some rope/line to make mini whoopie slings. It won't be carrying a huge load, maybe 100 lbs. I need alot of it, so it would be great if it wasnt too expensive! Any suggestions? Thanks! STEVE

    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    zing-it http://www.reddenmarine.com/samson-rope-zing-it.html

    lash-it http://www.reddenmarine.com/samson-rope-lash-it.html

    Either one can be used to make mini whoopies and both are hollow.

    Lash-it is grey and zing-it is yellow.

    Hey Dog, is the Zing-it stiff? will it work for a prussick? I am looking to make some cool prussicks for my ARL.

    I've actually used braided mason's line with success. And really cheap too! Zing-it/Lash-it would be great as well!

    I just picked up some lash-it from West Marine. You'll probably have to have them order it since most of their stores don't stock it. Also, take a print out of Redden Marine's price and they will match it. This could save you some money if you can avoid paying for shipping.

    It will work for prussicks. It's a little slippery so you might have to put an extra wrap or two. Also, many people find that a Klemheist Knot holds a little better.
