    Question about the stitching on the closed eye...

    Is it necessary to run the stitches several inches down the bury as shown or will several stitches close to the the entry point suffice?

    For that matter, are the stitches in the closed eye necessary at all in this application since the bury is wrapped as part of the knot on the hammock?
    Thanks,
    Yes, I think I would still give it some stitching. It's simple and fast. Just a few in and out stitches, then turn the cord 90 degrees and do a few more. There is a good diagram in one of Sampson's pdf files.

    Thanks stumo, that is 7/64" amsteel. 1/8" works well also.

    That camera rig does the trick pal!
    Think I like the idea of more stiches to lock it ... personally.
    That wire rig works great.

    This really makes the whole Whoopie rig clear and understandable! Well done pal.
    Thanks Michael. I failed to give credit to PacoWarabi in the credits. I used his "Tabletop Demonstrator" and camera mount described in his youtube vids and on his blog. Thanks Paco!!

    Nice video production. Great music!!

    Whoopies are addictive.

    HB and I are taking to the woods today and tonight to field test Whoopie/UCR suspensions and the new Dynaglide tarp tie-outs. Really curious whether we'll be breaking ice, plodding through snow, tromping in the mud or all of the above.

    Thanks. Yes, just a simple piece of music/hobby wire doubled over, makes a great tool.

    Thanks Shug! Had my old rough voice in the first version. Couldn't stand to listen to it. Hands and music are better. Folks say they are visual learners anyhow. Seasons Greetings to ya!

    You guys have a great trip RF. I do think you'll find all of those conditions, and some sunshine too. I'm glad you liked the video.

    Ken, that was a wonderful and very helpful video!

    ...A real 'scalp saver'! (I can stop scratching my head wondering now!)

    Thanks a bunch!

    Thanks Ken.
    That makes it all very clear.

    We got one pair of WhoOpieSlings for Christmas.

    Your video helps convince my husband that he will want a pair.
