    Video : A Brief Primer on Hammock Suspension, Part III : Constriction

    a.k.a. "Whoopie Slings for Hammocking : The Movie". Intended for the mildly curious in what this Whoopie Sling and UCR business is all about.

    Little did I know when I did the earlier "Brief Primer on Hammock Suspension" videos that a new way of using cord suspensions was about to show up on the HF scene.

    When ZA206 popped in and talked about his Utility Constrictor Rope, it set off a wave of posts, asking questions, making observations, making the connection with Whoopie Slings, posts on splicing, and fids, and .... the kind of stuff that keeps me hanging 'round Hammock Forums.

    It was only a matter of time until someone opined that it would be helpful if someone put up a video on these suspensions based on rope constriction. I figured I would once I had enough experience with them to be able to contribute something by way of explanation, if not actual technology.

    So the video is made, I confess it is a bit more rushed and less polished than I like, but discretionary time is vanishing and if I didn't do it this last couple of days it wouldn't get done until late September.

    So, the next in the "Primer" series : Part III : Constrictors
