Copied from CRL: Whoopie vs Dutch ware
My suspension is kept in a pocket mesh bag, for when I have to pack them up wet. I 'borrowed' a couple of my wife's hair ties to help keep everything together. Playing cards were already on the table, so I left them for scale.
Here is one side of my suspension.
The hair tie is also inside the larks head that holds my toggle onto the strap to keep me from dropping and losing it. It's also handy to gather up the 'tail' end of the whoopie, and keep it off the ground when I'm all set up. Let's take this outside....
Here's the strap around one of the wider trees I have in my yard. In this instance, I don't really need a toggle. The sling and strap are already attached.
Here is a smaller tree. Let's say I have a relatively short span and I need to 'choke up' a bit on the strap...
...put in a MSH...
... and loop the fixed eye over the knot.
I don't think I lose any versatility, or create any more failure points. My thinking is the strap/sling joined this way eliminates the need for a knot.
Feedback welcome. Thanks all!
