    So I did it... jerks!

    You convinced me.

    I went and ordered the Dutchware whoopie suspension setup.

    Could someone please convince me to feel better about how the tail length of a whoopie sling doesn't slip through the bury when my 250 pound butt is hanging over the sharp granite rocks of the Sierra Nevadas, again?

    I'm 212 pounds and haven't had a problem with my whoopie slings.
    You will love your whoopie slings.

    You won't regret it! Dutchware is probably the most coveted vendor for suspension and his titanium gadgets are fantastic!

    There are literally thousands of people both heavier and lighter than yourself who have been using whoopies for years and I haven't yet read of any failures.

    No need for us to convince you.
    When you get the whoopies, throw one up over a branch, grab a hold and swing yourself around. If that doesn't convince you, I guess you could go through every HF members profile to look at the large number of people using a whoopie suspension.

    What, no more 15 oz. kammok suspension? Did you get the whoopie hook suspension with continuous loops to go through your channels?
