Given that whoopie slings and the like are ridiculously easy to make and places like DIY Gear Supply sell raw amsteel so cheap, why would people pay so much for premade amsteel products?
Some of us like the fiddle factor and make our own stuff. But not everyone has the time, confidence or desire to do it. Whoopie slings aren't hard to make but they do take a little time, plus liability insurance and other overhead costs.
