Hi There, I joined this forum a little over a year ago and have gone from knowing nothing to enough to be dangerous. I have learned everything from reading forums here. I have successfully made Opie's adjustable tarp lines out of 1.75 zing it w/ silicone tubing at the end for stretch and wanted to try my hand at 7/64 amsteal loops and whoopies. I have purchased several sets from whoopeslings.com and thought id try my self. My question is, if I made 12'' loops its been stated in a thread to use a 6'' bury, if I wanted 8'' loops would I do the same and half it to 4'' burys or keep the 6''. I am 300lbs and don't want an accident Lol… I was just curious for a guideline for different loop sizes. The second question is on the whoopies, for the fixed eye how long of a bury is safe for me and on the working/adjustable end the same question? I want to make 6' whoopies and am trying to figure how much line to order. Im sure this has been answered somewhere but I got tired of reading. I understand about accounting for the taper, bury, the loss you get from the bury (25% of the bury length) and the actual length you want all added together for the loops. Does it work the same way for the whoopies? Sorry for the super long post, just want to get it right the first time.
Thanks so much
