    I wanted to personally thank you for this tutorial and the one on you did on the continuous loops. I was able to complete both projects for my hammock the first time out of the gate with ZERO mistakes. Your tutorial in my humble opinion was excellent and gave me enough confidence to complete the project. They look great on my hammock and has significantly lowered my hammocks weight. Again thanks!

    I can't even begin to tell you how awesome this tutorial is. As a complete newb, I just constructed my first 6 whoopie slings ever, in a little less than an hour! First step towards my first DIY hammock build!

    Thanks a ton!!

    This video was the very video I found today, and followed along with to make 4 whoopie slings for my hammock and my son's hammock. Thank you for making it so easy to follow (slow + clear audio = winner).

    Video: How to make Whoopie Slings

    Awesome tutorial, I just made a set. For the fish tool I used the copper from a length of romex I had laying around. It was a little big but I made it work. Canít wait to try these out. Thanks for posting this!

    Terrific video. Thanks. These are not my first whoopee-slings of soft-shackles, but I find it's usually best to follow a good video that's been widely vetted by others. (TacBlades also has some good videos).
    I've got some 3/64" (1.2 mm) straightened piano wire bent into a tight corner. The other end is in a wooden handle. Very simple. I'll post a picture of it. I've found that while any wire can work pretty good, a good stiff and straight fish-tool with a handle makes a bury fool-proof. (As I prove every time I use it.) Any wire will work, but if you can spend a little time straightening it out. The width of the insert end is 1/8" (3.25 mm).
    For a quick fid a couple inches of a plastic drinking straw cut at an angle, with the non-point side slit an inch or so along the length. It can be better than a real fid for soft ropes (like amsteel) because just by squeezing a little you can make it any diameter.

    Just wanted to say thanks for making an awesome video. Took about an hour to make the first one but the second went much smoother once I got the hang of it.
