    I got mine Friday I think.
    Thanks Opie!

    Is anyone going to post some tips and tricks on making these things into some whoopie or UCR guylines? Including pictures? Or does that exist already?
    I know there are instructions for Amsteel, but this line is a much smaller diameter.
    Thanks!

    For my UCR guy lines... I use 8' for the main line and 20" for the constrictor.

    2" loops, 1 on the main line and 1 on the constrictor with 2" buries. The rest of the constrictor is used for the bury of the main line. Then backsplice the tails.

    My first ever whoopie sling is completed, in green dynaglide. What a fun thing this is going to be to show off to my kids and friends over the holidays. Now to dive back into the threads and read everything on whoopie slings. How long is the bury going to need to be with the dynaglide. I made mine ten inches, and it seems rock solid but I am not going to try to hang on it this late tonight.

    I think youll be good with 10". I use 9" on my 7/64 slings... I believe the smaller diameter the rope, the shorter the bury. Thats the adjustable end.

    I think Id stick with a 6" bury on the fixed eye.

    And the green is far easier to splice than the orange.
