    New Whoopie color!

    Hey Guys I just got off the phone and have confirmed an order on a custom Amsteel order of "Arrowhead Gunmetal" It will be a very deep grey-bordering on black. Very Stealth

    I will have it up for sale in Whoopie Slings in the next hour. And I will have some pictures to share in a day or two of the first batch of slings made up ready to ship by the weekend.

    I have already gone half way through a full spool so this will not last long!

    They are available at this address in the store.

    I just bought a couple of the dark whoopie slings. While I have taken great delight in splicing my own whoopie slings, It is a delight to do business with a fellow HF member.

    I just can't seem get enough black camping gear. Even if I don't need something, if it shows up for sale in black, I must buy it. My compulsion for stealth worries me. Could it be that I have a secret NSA/CIA influence that has programed my purchases?

    Ive been reading a lot about woopie slings, how their made (splice the rope then use a needle to run one end of the rope through the middle of the rope), what their made of (amstel blue rope in shug's case black) but I dont quite get how they work....I understand that their the lightest suspension system for a hammock....in simple words can some one explain how these suspension systems work vs a traditional strap system....does a woopie system help with less slipage/sagging of the hammock...Thanks HF
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Think Chinese finger trap. When the outer part of the splice is weighted, it acts like a Chinese finger trap, squeezing around the bury and keeping it in place, and thus, not allowing it to slip.There are tons of suspension options out there, but I like the whoopie sling the best.
